This book is moving, and is the undeniably powerful story of man and his will to live and his God who helped him accomplish it. Edward Herrmann is a remarkable narrator whose voice fits perfectly with such a noble story. The story can be very violent and almost excruciating to listen to because of the unfathomable torture the POWs had to endure. But it is all part of the story, and would not be as powerful without it.
Fantastic story highly recommended. Great narration added to the drama of the saga. I read this after the movie came out, but never saw the movie. If the movie followed this story, it must have been very poignant and moving. The author did a wonderful job putting the story together and it flowed perfectly. Well done.
Listening to this audiobook really transformed the way I approach my day to day inconveniences which previously seemed to carry more weight.
This story keeps you rooting against all odds, amid the worst punishments one could never begin to imagine.
