These 12 accounts describe the battle experience, the different nations' attitudes toward imprisonment, and the often-barbaric treatment of prisoners of war. Hardship, brutality, frostbite, hunger, strenuous working conditions, and the jubilation of release are presented in the words of the soldiers, portraying the Bataan Death March, Wake Island, D-Day, the Battle of the Bulge, and the camps where they watched their comrades in arms suffer and perish. The book also features photographs, maps, camp lists, and POW regulations.
Harry Spiller served two tours in Vietnam with the Marine Corps. A retired professor, he previously taught criminal justice. He lives in Marion, Illinois.
