World War II was thing compared to The Battle of Waikiki. Author Tom Speaker takes readers through the sometimes excruciating, always hilarious ways an eighteen-year-old, sheltered, and somewhat spoiled boy almost single-handedly brings the U.S. Army to its knees, waving the white flag of surrender. But there is hope for our hero as he matures, falls in love, and suffers heartbreaks. Finally, his deep love for a beautiful native Hawaiian girl, Mercedes Mia, causes him to move from immaturity and selfishness to maturity and unselfish love. With her help, he turns to God and realizes that with God, thing is impossible. In The Battle of Waikiki, follow Mike Teague as he stumbles through the necessities of the army and lives the adventures, sports, history, young love, and beauty of our fiftieth state.
