I felt every word of this book. I feel like I know this man, I love this man, I want to meet this man. So well told. My heart broke over and over during this story. Yet, I felt his and others energy and will to live. I learned so much about WWII and how a will to live can survive through such hell. I'm proud of these men!
That it is a true story of an incredible man of honor and valour and GREATNESS!
I loved that it updates all the close people to Louis.
The horrors that Louis went through while in the prison camps and that he was able to stay alive through the unimaginable beatings and conditions! Triumph in the end!!!!!!!!
no I have not.
yes I laughed with Louis and saddened greatly at the continual harshness of the Japanese captors. (The Bird)
Would recommend this book to everyone!
made me tear up several times at the incredible power of the human spirit and the faith of a man developed in dire circumstances forgotten for a time and recalled to remembrance through the efforts of a loving spouse and an inspired minister. a wonderful story of family love and Devotion.
I have listened to this story three times in less than one year. The story of Louis's courage amidst unbeatable odds will stay with me all my days. Also, the narrator, Edward Herman, soon became as important as the story itself.
