    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.

    Matthew says: "Extremely interesting and well-written!"

    Overall

    I thank Bruce Henderson and Dieter Dengler for their service to our country. I admire Dieter's heroism. But I really didn't enjoy this book, sorry to say. A listener with a military background may enjoy it more than I did, since it is THICK with military detail. I found my attention wandering when listening to the book. The last couple of hours were pretty engaging - but it took a lot of listening to get to that point.
    Possibly, I was a little more critical because I had just finished Unbroken by Lauren Hillenbrand - which was the perfect combination of story, hero, writer, narrator.
