Midwest Authors Joseph Tachovsky and Cynthia Kraack announce the release of their new WWII history book: “40 Thieves on Saipan: The Elite Marine Scout-Snipers in One of WWII’s Bloodiest Battles” about a covert Special Operations platoon led by Joseph’s father, Lieutenant Frank Tachovsky (“Ski”). Known as the “40 Thieves,” these brave men contributed to the V-J Day Japanese surrender on August 15, 1945, and official signing of papers on the USS Missouri on September 2, 1945, in Tokyo BayJoseph opened his father’s “off limits” footlocker. “It was like a puzzle was in front of me that I felt compelled to put together.” This treasure trove included personal letters, medals, photographs and memories, which are now the basis of this historic book about his father’s undercover platoon on Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands.
