This book is about a devastating American scandal. Two award-winning journalists provide startling evidence that the American government, right up to its highest echelons, knows, & has always known, that American POWs were left behind at the end of the war. More amazingly, it has regularly obstructed the efforts of private citizens to discover the truth. This is a heartbreaking account of men sacrificed to American foreign policy & to clandestine operations some of them highly questionable concealed from the American public & its elected representatives.
