This was a good book based on a true story of a man who finds himself fighting in one of the most horrific wars of our time. He is captured by the Chinese and becomes a POW for over 2 years. This writing gives a good description of what a POW to the North Korean and Chinese was like for our men. He includes information on his last great battle during that War; his capture, the death march, the 1/2 way camp in Suan called The Mining Camp, and his long imprisonment as a POW. As this author points out, most of our troops were good men doing the best they could to survive and abide the oaths they had taken as a members of our military. Read this and look for others books like it based on this topic. Remember that each soldiers story is unique in his own. But again, who should know this story better than those who were the fighting soldiers and captured POWs?

After hearing about , and seeing the Author, Richard Bassett , on PBS , I realized,that I knew him long ago as , a fine teenager from a wonderful family..It was the first book I put on my Kindle Christmas present ! Never have I read anything that gives a more complete understanding of the day by day horrid ordeal of our brave P.O.W.s ! The description of the lives lived by them is so remarkably remembered, one feels as though they were there with them.. This should be read by all, to deepen the regard we already feel towards our military ,the debt we owe to them , and especially to those who gave so very much.!
God bless them all, and God bless the U.S.A..

I bought this book to learn how the POWs were treated and what they did to them. I never knew my biological Dad who I do have most of his medals who did fight in Korea. He had lost some of them and I know he wanted me to have them. I have heard so many stories what the abuse the solders were subjected to. I can relate with them as I have been told in the book by just releasing them and sending them home. It is so sad we did not know what Post Traumtic Stress Syndorme is or how it affects people. I now understand why he never came around and was a wonderer-hobo. Oh how I really enjoyed the book for it was a good learning leason. I liked the way the author goes into detail painting the picture and puts you in the middle of it without going overboard. It is well written and injoyed reading.....Lets not forget " The Forgotten War"
