Thanks for creating a good story to help others understand a often forgotten issue of war.
I learned so much about the horrific conditions that the prisoners of war in Korea had to endure from death marches through snow and mountains, lack of medical care, forced labor, starvation, and torture to the loss of hope by many. Prisoners were forced to sign “confessions” and statements against the United States and march in parades holding banners. Their ingenuity on making banners with nonsensical or double meanings made me chuckle (such as “Up Mao” and “Chairman Mao for President”). Paul Larson’s newly learned skill of picking locks was useful numerous times, and his escapades were legendary (and life-saving) to his friends and many fellow soldiers.
“Finnegan Found” is a story of overcoming extreme hardship, the horrors of war, true friendship, and hope in spite of almost impossible odds with a war and the heroes that we must not forget.
