About the book:

The act of becoming a POW does not a hero make, . . . the act of being a POW made some heroes. This book tells of some who are American heroes.

  • Nearly 10,000 American flying officers shot from the sky and scraped up from the European landscape and dumped behind barbed wire.
  • An absorbing story of life in a German POW camp during World War II. The authors unique timing (stationed at Hickam Field (Pearl Harbor) during the attack on Dec. 7, 1941) and his terrifying experience of later becoming a Jewish prisoner of the Nazis makes this a compelling reading experience. The difficulty of dredging up so many painful memories is apparent in the authors writing. It could serve as a balm, or as a floodgate key, for many readers of his generation.
  • The writing style is personal and highly readable.
  • &he makes no attempt to arrange these stories so that they make a nice progression from simplicity to complexity, past to present, primitive to civilized, sensuous to intellectual. They lie as they fell.
    Wallace Stegner, Collected Stories, September 7, 1989
