Hillenbrand is an excellent writer, her research so extensive and her descriptive qualities amazing. Additionally, Hermann's narration is gripping. I listened to the entire story, stopping only to eat and sleep.
The reality of mans inhumanity to man, along with mans ability to rise above seemingly impossible odds is awe inspiring! I am grateful for the power of prayer and faith that became so life changing for all the youth he served and others lives he touched.
I highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the history of American and those who have, and are served by our military.
Did not read print version
Very good suspense
Time on the ocean
Great book that helped me understand the brutal conditions our POWs endured.
Superb story, very well narrated. Inspiring to the core. Uplifting - if you are looking for something to lift your spirits in dark times this could be your ticket; it was mine.
This was a very moving story that taught you about life, trials, perseverance, tragedy and forgiveness. After listening to this book I really need to see the movie. Thanks again for what I have learned from this experience.
