Stephen L. Moore

Stephen L. Moore is the author of eighteen books on World War II and Texas history. His latest, As Good As Dead: The Daring Escape of American POWs From a Japanese Death Camp, covers the dramatic escape of eleven American POWs from the Palawan Massacre in the Philippines during December 1944. Moore, a sixth generation Texan, is a graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University.

Recently I asked the author about what he was reading. Moore's reply:
The most recent book I’ve read is James Hornfischer’s new release, The Fleet at Flood Tide, which covers the last year of the war in the Pacific. The depths of his research is evident in an important work that helps reveal the startling psyche of a Japanese culture that must be reckoned with if the Allies decide to invade mainland Japan.

Currently, I am reading John Stryker Meyer’s Across the Fence: The Secret War in Vietnam. Meyer, a leader of a small Special Forces team of Green Berets, recounts his dangerous, and previously classified missions, as his team is pursued by NVA patrols while in enemy territory during the Vietnam War.
