The story of the reporter for a Marine publication who falls into the hands of the Japanese and is saved by the atomic bomb [Flying Correspondent] is wildly exciting, and probably not a bit more implausible than the things that really happened. We particularly enjoyed the dialogue, which was amusing and natural, and a great improvement on the heroics to which we were accustomed when the Boy Allies were at Liége.
