Overview

An unforgettable true story, Two Souls Indivisible stirringly recounts the forging of a legendary, heroic bond between two soldiers. Fred Cherry and Porter Halyburton first met in their shared cell in a brutal POW camp in Vietnam. Cherry, an air force pilot, was badly injured after his plane crashed; he became the first black officer to be captured by the North Vietnamese. Halyburton, a young navy flier, was a naive white southerner thrown in as Cherry’s cellmate. Their captors hoped close quarters would inflame American-bred racial tensions and break both men. Instead, American integrity and honor flourished, and as Cherry was nursed back to health, a friendship grew strong. The intense connection, powerfully reported by James S. Hirsch, would sustain both men through the war and throughout their lives. Inspiring, heartbreaking, remarkable, and never more timely, Two Souls Indivisible shows how good people can achieve greatness in the most hellish of circumstances.

Hello, We have been notifiied about this kind of behavior and iit needs to stop. We can find the users of these nooks and suspend comments but that takes time. As of right now we may have to ask for a lag to be put on the system for a little while. The is unacceptable and will not be accepted on this tablet's system. May we ask nice that you stop before this gets utterly out of hand. This is very distrbing to some of our valued customers. We would appreciate it if you not disturb others with this context. I hope you all understand this message. - the Barnes and Noble Team
