The Jersey Brothers: A Missing Naval Officer in the Pacific and His Family’s Quest to Bring Him Home By Sally Mott Freeman“The Jersey Brothers: A Missing Naval Officer in the Pacific and His Family’s Quest to Bring Him Home”

By Sally Mott Freeman

Sally Mott Freeman spent more than a decade digging into family myth and U.S. Navy war records to unravel a clear-eyed accounting of her uncle’s WWII saga. A U.S. Navy ensign, Barton Cross was wounded in the Philippines and spent the entire war as a Japanese prisoner, enduring appalling acts of cruelty and abuse at the hands of his captors. Freeman’s tale spans the entire Pacific theater and minutely details the efforts of her father, who commanded FDR’s war room and later became an admiral, as well as another uncle, veteran of several Pacific naval battles, to find their baby brother and bring him home.
