Pressestimmen"Needs to be read by all who desire to understand the stuff of which heroes are made." - Adm. Elmo R. Zumwalt, Jr., USN (Ret.); "He made better decisions while pinned down flat in his dingy cells in Hanoi than the highly placed Washington officials of those years made in their padded swivel chairs." - Vice Adm. James Stockdale, USN (Ret.), former POW; "More so than many other books on the subject, this book gives the reader a sense of what it means to be imprisoned for a long time." - National Review
