I appreciate more then ever what our soldiers endure for the rest of us to have freedom. Also taught never relinquish your self to hatred and be who you can be whatever that is for each one of us.
This is an amazing book about an amazing man who lived through unbelievable horrors but came out in the end unbroken and being used for good. The power of God to save in the end was encouraging and inspiring.
Surprising ending to a masterfully-crafted true story of a man who found final redemption and forgiveness for his shockingly cruel captors, suddenly appreciating how God had woven the mosaic of his entire life -- his record-shattering giftedness, his unending odyssey at sea and his POW barbarism -- ultimately to orchestrate final joy for the man, his family and all of us, his readers and spectators, many years later.
The beginning of the book didn't hold my interest because I wasn't interested in such in-depth descriptions of the planes and military equipment. However the rest of the book was compelling and heart-wrenching. It was hard to put down. Edward Hermann was the perfect choice for narration. Outstanding!
