Раненых не оставлять — так, кажется, принято у военных. Но бывают случаи, когда приходится действовать вопреки традиции.

4 дня после гибели эсминца «Стронг» (USS Strong) 23 человека боролись за свои жизни в Тихом океане. Лишь шестерым из них посчастливилось добраться до суши — их вынесло течением к острову Арундел. Двое умерли сразу. Лейтенант Хью Миллер был настолько слаб, что не мог двигаться, у него открылось внутреннее кровотечение. Он раздал троим матросам свои вещи — ветровку, обувь, сухой паек и велел оставить его. Точно неизвестно, как провел Миллер время между 14 и 17 июля в 1943 году, но 17–го хлынул тропический ливень и ему стало лучше, кровотечение остановилось. Лейтенант перекусил кокосом и нашел на пляже труп японца. Так у него появилась одежда, паек и гранаты, которыми он и закидал 5 августа японский патруль. Так началась его маленькая личная война, которая длилась сорок три дня и стоила японцам 30 солдат. Миллер обустроил в джунглях логово и выходил на охоту. Он педантично собирал все документы у своих жертв, собрав таким образом довольно ценные материалы. Наверное не зря Миллер служил на эсминце «Сильный» и уж совсем не удивительно, что спас его пилот по фамилии Luck.

Миллера наградили Военно–Морским Крестом и Пурпурным Сердцем. В 1956 году его история была рассказана в сериале NAVY Log, а в 1957 он вместе со своим спасителем пилотом Гудвином Лаком появился в телешоу «This Is Your Life» с ведущим Рональдом Рейганом. Все это осталось в прошлом, я могу предложить вам лишь перевод этой истории из этой книги и рапорт (eng)лейтенанта Миллера. Пара фотографий — в комментариях.

  4. The Baggins family lived in the Shire, mostly in or near the town of Hobbiton. Evidently aristocratic landowners, they intermarried extensively with the two titled families of the Shire, the Tooks and the Brandybucks. It seems likely that the Bagginses were the major landowners and leading family of the area around Hobbiton. They were seen as respectable (indeed, as more respectable than the aristocratic Tooks) until Bilbo Baggins set out on the quest for Erebor with Gandalf the Grey and thirteen Dwarves: when he returned he was seen as odd or queer, but also extremely rich.
