Description:

First Edition hardcover book fine with a fine dust jacket. A sharp unread copy. Mylar to protect the jacket at no extra cost. This book is not price clipped, not an ex-library, not remaindered, no spine slant, and not a book club. A sharp copy and unread. This autobiography is "both an authentic look at the POW experience and also an amusing account of one man's way of coping with a brutal captivity." -- Sen. John McCain Makes a great gift!.

Synopsis: Thorsness joined the U.S. Air Force in 1951 at age 18 and became a jet pilot during the Vietnam War. During an 1967 mission he was shot down over North Vietnam. Injured and captured, he spent six years in the Hanoi Hilton. When the war ended in 1973, Thorsness was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Surviving Hell is a harrowing story of captivity, as told by the man who lived it.

About the Author: LEO THORSNESS received his Medal of Honor after he was released from his North Vietnamese prison in 1973. From 1988 to 1992, he served as a senator from Washington State. Mr. Thorness now lives in Huntsville, Alabama.
