Understand for the first time the affect the Chinese entry into the war had not only on the prisoners, but the North Korean civilians as well. Includes a list of over 1250 Korean War POW/MIAs found during the research conducted for the books.

From the Author:

I grew up never realizing the true character of the man who raised me. I had known that he was a prisoner during the war but like most repatriated POWs, the years spent in captivity were not a subject for discussion in our family. I wrote this book to honor my father's dream of documenting the experiences of Korean War POWs. But more importantly, it was written as his lasting tribute to all of those who gave their freedom, and in some cases their lives, so my family and many others can live free. It is intended to honor the over 1250 men listed in the back of the book and all of their comrades in arms. Their sacrifices have not been in vain and will not be forgotten.
