A well-documented biography of an extraordinary person, Emil Kapun, who was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, Medal of Honor, and named "Servant of God" by the Vatican.

Try to escape, the American soldiers warned Catholic Chaplain Emil Kapaun. However, he refused to leave his wounded comrades and became a POW. His decision marked a turning point in the inspiring life of this young priest.

Kapaun's faith and courage on the battlefield and in prison set an example for hundreds of young American captives. When they were starving, he stole food for them. If the men needed encouragement, he defied prison rules and prayed with them. When the communist guards mocked his faith in God, the chaplain publicly defended his beliefs.

When Kapaun became sick, the communist denied him medicine and watched him die in their vermin-infested "hospital." However, they could not extinguish the memories of how he served other prisoners.

Review:

In the more than 250-year history of the army's Corps of Chaplains, few chaplains have deserved a biography more than Emil Kapaun. --The Catholic Historical Review

A comprehensive look into the life of the simple, yet incredible, man of God. It is a fairly quick read and well worth the time. --War Literature and The Arts

Tells the story of Emil's life with special emphasis on his cheerful, courageous, heroic service on the battlefield and in prison. --Theology Digest
