what a wonderful example of true heroism it makes you wonder how courageous our current politicians and their advisors would be under the same inhumane conditions I am so proud of all our service men and women past and present

"whean hell was in session" is an amazing memoir writtion by a decorated combat pilot who servered his time in vietnam and was shot down and was tortured in the infamous hanoi hilton prison but he kept his courage up and used his eye lids to give codes to the out side world to pass out military information he kept his moral and the moral of his fellow prisoners uplifted and gave them the will to live. after the war was over he went into public office and became a united states senator. amazing bestseller could not put it down. great gift idea for a friend or family member or a vetren.

Jeremiah Denton describes the life he lived in the Hanoi Hilton which was a demoralizing and painful prison camp. His story explained many encouraging events of inspiration with determination of keeping his and his fellow pow's honor, as well as keeping them alive. His courage kept him determined to see his family again even when he thought he was seconds away from breathing his last breathes. 'When Hell Was in Session' makes 'The Count of Monte Cristo' seem like a walk in the park. Thank God for Adm. Denton, he is my hero and should be to every American. He is what makes the United States the proudest and strongest country.

Admiral Dention is a true American hero. I have never seen anyone go through that and come back to be the honorable man he was and is. I am amazed at his dedication to his country, something every American should feel. Too many people don't realize what a privelage it is to live in the USA. For those who criticize it - go ahead and live somewhere else and don't come crying back to me!!! A stellar piece of work...everyone should read it!
