Recently I read the book “Leave No Man Behind” by David C Isby which describes various SOF missions US undertook from 1945 to 2004. In that books author points out the first POW released by US froces by a liberation mission since 1945 is Jessica Lynch !! Prior to that, the last successful mission was Los Banos Phillipines 1945.
Considering the numbr of conflicts US get entangled this fact seems ridiculously crazy…surely with all its military might US must ve rescued some POW’s through covert missions…!
Holywood made hunderds of movies about somethings that never happened since 1945? Although movies are not a reliable source of information , I thought atleast US must be having some sorta effective liberation mechnism which is exaggerated by movie makers.
1 person in 60 years…this has dented my trust in US forces considerably… If you guys have any knowledge of any covert missions sucessful in this period lets discuss…
