Having a pre-release copy of this book gives me the advantage! What an excellent book of the life prior to capture, during capture and escape and capture and escape again finally resulting in freedom. A knowledge of English jargon or slang is very helpful. The Author manages to include humor with starvation, atrocities and degradations plus a stiff backbone and the will to live in this very well written book. Very enjoyable and hard to put down and I would recommend this book to anyone especially WWII buffs and anyone interested in our Veterans and what they went through! Get a Copy and Read it! oldgoat
