Editorial Reviews

Review

"Unless you were there, you will never truly understand what it was like to be fighting a war that had no description. As a Vietnam Veteran I can empathize with all who have served, but reading Robert's story has added a whole new dimension to this experience. I had to engage the enemy on occasion, but I never had to live with him. I can only imagine what it must have been like to be a POW in NorthVietnam. Robert Wideman and his remarkable book do an incredible job of putting us there!"
-W.R. (Bill) Cobb,1st Army Vietnam Veteran, Fortune 50 Executive, and Author
 
"I roomed with Bob at various times during those trying and difficult years as POWs in North Vietnam. I shared a number of the episodes he relates. His perceptive analyses and detailed descriptions vividly depict our interactions and emotions as human beings unwillingly thrown together into inescapable, trying situations and our individual and collective efforts to cope with and overcome these adverse conditions."
-Howard Hill, RetiredU.S. Air Force Colonel
 
"An eye-opener. I had developed a totally different picture of POW existence. Unexpected Prisoner is a must-read."
-Billy Thornton, PhD,Vietnam War Veteran
 
"This is a truly remarkable account of experiences from within the walls of captivity."
-Rick Fischer,Vietnam War Veteran, Army Pathfinder shot down in 1969
 
"A lot of great books have been written about the American experience that is called Vietnam. Robert Wideman's Unexpected Prisoner is a great book that tells the truth regardless of the consequences to a man who was shot down and held captive for six long years."
-Albert St. Clair,Navy Diver, Carrier Pilot and Veteran of Iraqi Freedom, Desert Shield, andEnduring Freedom
 
"Unless you were there, you will never truly understand what it was like being a POW in Vietnam. Robert Wideman and his remarkable book do an incredible job of putting you there!"
-Brad Hoopes, Authorof Reflections of Our Gentle Warriors
 
"Robert Wideman and I share a common bond from our years in Vietnam. He was shot down and taken captive. I was over run at Con Thien (a hill at the DMZ). His story of captivity is the most accurate version of the events that occurred in the North I have ever heard. Truly refreshing."
-Captain William(Willydog) Roberts, Retired U.S. Marine
 
"As a naval aviator who endured a very real ten-day survival training exercise, I can barely imagine six years as a POW! Thanks to Robert for sharing. This book is a must-read for those interested in understanding the risks our men and women in uniform with combat assignments and enemy exposure face every single day."
-Sam Solt, FormerNaval Aviator
 
"As a member of U.S.Army Counter intelligence, part of my job was acting as the 'Aggressor' forescape and evasion training of Army personnel. Robert Wideman's book lays out in spades what we tried to prepare our soldiers to expect and endure if captured. This book should be a text for training in the future."
-Howard Lowell,Former Army Counterintelligence Officer
