Inspirational and moving true story beautifully narrated by Edward Hermann. A must for all who think they can't survive an awful situation.
This is an almost unbelievable story of an individual's strength and perseverance. Some of the story was so intense it was difficult to listen to. In the end, the story is completely inspirational
Since both of my grandfather was involved in WWII. They had shared their stories to me and to everyone in the family.. When one of my grandfather passed away, my cousin had found out that that grandfather who passed away first was involved with Pearl Harbor in his Navy years. I know that there is a movie that been made which I haven't seen yet. But, I want to read the novel so that I can see and feel about this soldier who suffered a lot in his past. And I had figured out that this is why my grandfather didn't share the stress that he had gone through.. Also, I want to hear more about the survivor and how he able to survive and get his freedom that he deserves.
The story is gripping and amazing. I couldn't stop listening. The narration was very good. I didn't think I would like it, but I really loved it.
This book captured me from the start and carried my attention through its end. Very well done.
What was endured by this man and so many others humbles me and feeds the pride of a noble generation. well written..engaging..
The descriptive events, history, and perspectives enrich my knowledge of the period while providing an unexpectedly rich literary experience.
The narration was wonderful. the explicit details in which the author wrote the story was amazing. some of the details made you feel like you were right there in the story with them I don't know if I would want to see the movie after the picture the book left in my mind.
