"Thomas McKenna's survey reads with the drama of fiction...making for an unusually gripping read... Moro Warrior is highly recommended and holds the promise to appeal to a diverse audience with its special blend of lesser-known facts, original research, and attention to capturing the lives, thoughts, and culture of a nation challenged by war."
--Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review
"Thomas McKenna...tells the story of one of the unsung heroes of the [Philippine] resistance, Mohammad Adil, in his new and groundbreaking book Moro Warrior."
Francis P. Sempa, Asian Review of Books
"Thomas McKenna has uncovered a jewel of a story of a friendship that bridges continents and cultures set against the backdrop and tragedy of war. Moro Warrior is equal parts thriller, war story, and human interest narrative that will leave readers all the richer for taking this powerful journey."
--James M. Scott, Pulitzer Prize finalist and author of Target Tokyo and Rampage
"Thomas McKenna employs decades of research and unmatched familiarity with the people of Mindanao, offering a riveting history of the underreported and underappreciated role of the Moros in fighting the Japanese occupation of the Philippines during World War II. So doing, he tells the compelling story of Mohammad Adil, a tireless fighter and noble recruit to the battle for justice and freedom in the Philippines. As we follow Adil from young man to veteran fighter, MORO WARRIOR becomes an intense saga of survival, McKenna's work is all the more remarkable because he has assembled a history never before fully told."
--Peter Eisner, author of MacArthur's Spies: The Soldier, the Singer, and the Spymaster Who Defied the Japanese in World War II
