This book is just as genuine and is a vivid examination of what it's like to be a POW in brutal captivity for years. The book also has his reflections on the present-day U.S.. Here, he is refreshing, and can be brutally candid on such institutions as the South's best-known anachronistic walled military place.
Mostly though, it's the love story between what he and his wife have been though these years. No candy coating: A rare American hero with the straight story.
Those of us who have not been tested this way should know the history of those who did.
This book should be required reading for US Presidents and all members of both houses of Congress.
The alternating chapters written by Jim and wife Sybil were a great way to get a complete picture of what took place.
Sybil Stockdale was a woman before her time, her frank and honest approach was so refreshing.
Dame Marie Stubbs now has some serious competition as my all time 'Woman of Inspiration'
After Dad's passing I felt I needed to 'know' these people, who without being aware helped us so much.
They present alternating chapters that chronicle their personal challenges which are a microcosm of the nation's challenges at that time.
This should be required reading for all Americans.
