Summary
For most combat soldiers, Vietnam was a battlefield war of guns and grenades. But for thousands of American combatants, the battlefield was a dark, vermin-infested cell in a prison compound like Hoa Lo, or what the POWs called the Hanoi Hilton. Captured Navy pilot Lt. Commander Williamson knows his only defense against torture, disease and despair is an indomitable will.
