Albert V. Greene, who became a prisoner of war during World War II and re-enlisted to serve in Korea and Vietnam, is one of America’s unsung heros. This book has two parts: The first is a memoir written by Greene that includes how he was captured by German forces and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp in Italy, where he tried to escape. The second part is written by his daughter, Margaret, who shares a biography of her father with illustrations about his military career. The book also serves as a family and cultural history, beginning with how the Greene family immigrated from Germany and Ireland to Brooklyn, New York, in the late 1800s. The narrative continues with Albert V. Greene’s recollection of his father’s military service during the Great War and how Albert V. Greene made a difference as a teacher at home. While Greene lost his battle with Alzheimer’s disease and died in 2009, he was laid to rest with the other heroes at Arlington National Cemetery.
