Story here.  The Indonesian government needs to actively pursue those who desecrate these sites.  Frankly, the US Navy should be authorized to attack and sink any vessel involved in such activity.

Every Day a Nightmare by William H. Bartsch.  A great book so far.

Thanks to fellow modeler Skippy, I was able to read this book over the last week.  I’ve always had a special interest for the period of history in the Pacific that is  covered by the first few months of WWII.  Skippy is a particular fan of the NEI (Netherlands East Indies) air war and is my go to source of knowledge on any question regarding that subject.  He recently allowed me to borrow this book, which he read and highly recommended.

As usual, Skippy was right.  This is an excellent book and a quick read.  It covers the subject well.  I particularly liked the fact that even though it was a big picture history of the events of the time, it had lots of personal stories and detail.  The appendix alone makes it a must have for any modeler considering building any of the MLD (Dutch Naval Air Service) aircraft of the period.  Highly recommended.
