NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Leaders with MacArthur Memorial announced their plans to virtually host a New York Times bestselling author in early December.

Kevin Maurer, the co-author of No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden, will be the special guest on Tuesday, December 1.

He plans to talk about his latest book Rock Force: The American Paratroopers who took back Corregidor and Exacted MacArthur’s Revenge on Japan. He says Rock Force is a new look at the 1945 airborne assault on the island fortress of Corregidor by the 503rd parachute infantry.
