Summary
This book compares the experiences of POWs from both sides of World War II. Based on over 150 interviews with surviving prisoners, Lewis Carlson brings the stories of these men to life, the memories as vivid as if the events occurred just yesterday. From the anti-Nazi German soldier who tried desperately to surrender rather than fight for Hitler, to the U.S. prisoner who thrice escaped his German captors -- the last time to join Russian troops in the Battle of Berlin -- to the Jewish-American prisoner who was shipped to a slave labor camp, these accounts reveal the terror and anguish of being captured and celebrate the resilience that kept these soldiers alive
