    In February 1966, U.S. Navy pilot Dieter Dengler was shot down over "neutral Laos". He crashed deep in territory controlled by North Vietnamese army regulars and the communist Pathet Lao, who would eventually capture him and hold him prisoner in a fortified jungle prisoner-of-war camp.

    What made the experience of listening to Hero Found the most enjoyable?

    A detailed account of a young man of his youth to his struggle to live and escape his captors while in, what was neutral Laos, that the American's at home never new about. Very interesting and never dull.


    What did you like best about this story?

    While the entire story was extremely interesting I found Dieter's escape to be quite riveting keeping me on the edge of my seat.


    Have you listened to any of Todd McLaren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The entire book was so amazing to me and it is the best book I have ever read. I know now who died in the plane that crashed east of Fresno when I was a child. I lived in the town where it crashed.
