But exhilaration is dashed a few weeks later when Thorsness and Johnson are shot down. We blast out of the cockpit with Thorsness and experiences his capture. The rest of this book is about being a prisoner of war in Hanoi. While the reader will experience apprehension, fear and anger with this man, you will also experience the will not to be broken and to protect and assist his fellow prisoners. The courage, dedication and patriotism of Thorsness and the other prisoners will fill you with admiration for them and make you proud to be an American.
I have met Leo Thorsness and I can say he is a hero in the truest sense. Not only because of his actions in North Vietnam, but also because of his positive attitude on life, his sense of humor and the fact that he is a genuine gentleman.
