About this title


“Richard Dudman, a lean, perceptive, honest reporter for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, has written a lean, perceptive, honest account of an extraordinary experience―his captivity by the Communists in Cambodia . . . refreshingly free of pretentious analyses and grandiose generalizations. And yet, more than all the academic studies and polemical treatises, it provides most profound insights into the nature of the enemy soldiers who have held the United States at bay in Indochina for years.” ―Washington Post

The story of a journalist held captive by guerrillas in Cambodia.
