About this title

Synopsis:

With this book, two respected scholars in the field offer a comprehensive, balanced, and authoritative account of what happened to the nearly eight hundred Americans captured in Southeast Asia. The authors were granted unprecedented access to previously unreleased materials and interviewed more than one hundred former POWs, enabling them to meticulously reconstruct the captivity record as well as produce an evocative narrative of a once sketchy and misunderstood yet key chapter of the war.
Giving due praise but never shirking from criticism, the authors describe in detail dozens of cases of individual courage and resistance, from celebrated heroes like Jim Stockdale, Robinson Risner, Jeremiah Denton, Bud Day, and Nick Rowe to lesser-known legends like Ray Schrump and Medal of Honor recipient Donald Cook.

From the Publisher:

The authors trace the capture and movement of U.S. servicemen and civilians through jungles and jails from the Mekong Delta to Hanoi

and west and north into Cambodia, Laos, and China. They cover the

rationed food, cramped and rat-infested cells, bricked windows,

and camps laced by barbed wire that were the daily lot of American POWS. They address a wide range of subjects from the physical ordeal of torture to the psychological challenges of indoctrination, exploitation for propaganda purposes, and the mere passing of time under the most adverse circumstances. In examining the lives of the prisoners in captivity, the book presents a vivid, sensitive, sometimes excruciating, and even humorous account of how men sought to cope with the physical and psychological torment of imprisonment under wretched and shameful conditions.
