I could only give this one 3 stars because it is so very hard to read about so much human misery and cruelty. Living in my comfortable, happy, sheltered, suburban home in 2010, I really can't comprehend the physical hardships those men endured, not to mention how people could treat others, even conquered captives, and especially fellow prisoners the way the POWs in the Phillipines were treated. Thank you so much to the authors for seeing the soldiers' stories through to some happiness and healing in their lives. Truly a book to make you appreciate the sacrificies made by our soldiers and inspire gratitude for the country and day and age we live in.
