Mar 31, Jeannie Walker rated it really liked it. I was especially interested in this book since my pop was in the war and served aboard a battleship in the Pacific fighting the Japanese. He was wounded in one particular kamikaze attack, but stayed his post and shot down the plane, even though part of his ship was on fire.
My pop received a Purple Heart and many other medals that were well deserved. It is about the life of a seaman in World War Two. It depicts what brave and courageous men went through both emotionally and physically while fighting for you and me. Overlook some typos, because this story has meaning.

This then leads into the main characters life, he receives the information and gives it to his officials at strategic points. It then twists when it turns out he is actually a spy for a different country. Todd Ingram is the main character in this book and he is a bold and adventurous person that is prepared to do anything.
He is risky and tries to do what is best for him, his sweetheart and of course, his country. This is the main character and drives the story and has a girlfriend that is fighting in the Philippines. Todd is always adventurous because he is always looking for something more dangerous and exciting in each and every chapter of the book.
Last but not least, Todd is risky. Todd Ingram relates to someone like Rambo, constantly getting himself in trouble, but winning every single time in fights and being a legend at life. I think my book is entertaining because it keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. I got it done within a few days because it was so good. The author made good choices in this book because the main two people didn't die, but one of my favorite characters died. I think that without some death or types of tragedy, books and movies would never make you think outside of the box about death vs life.
A Code for Tomorrow (Todd Ingram, book 2) by John J Gobbell
I disagree with letting the author dragging on the plot because it was very exciting but there were definitely large pieces of dialogue in there that did not positively contribute to the plot. This book raises awareness for what people in WW2 had to go through, it made me really appreciate my freedom and rights because of what people did during every single war for America.
This leads into how the book affected me, like what I was saying before, I learned to appreciate what happened in the wars for America. This is related to my course of life because I want to be more grateful towards veterans and current people in the military and thank them for the freedoms I have received because of their sacrifice.

I felt some of the sadness when one of my characters died in Japan. He was a funny character and spiced up the book. So when he died, it made the book less humorous and made me also angry because the author should have killed him.
I would suggest the book because I learned valuable lessons and I now have a greater understanding of history and the sacrifice of those who put their life on the line for America. Sloppy editing; repetitive plot I toiled through the first book. Started the second but gave up due to some really poor editing, terrible proofing and a plot that seemed stuck in the same gear.

This book is lost between war and romance- but that just might be the intriguing part. Some is lost with an overload of war jargon, but the intensity that it provides seems to overshadow the downside.

Gobbell, himself a young naval officer, combines painstaking research and solid storytelling to produce a highly readable military adventure.
