Publisher's Summary

Following the North Korean assault on the Republic of Korea in June of 1950, the invaders captured more than a thousand American soldiers and brutally executed hundreds more. American prisoners who survived their initial moments of captivity faced months of neglect, starvation, and brutal treatment as their captors marched them north toward prison camps in the Yalu River Valley. Cold Days in Hell provides a detailed account of their captivity and offers valuable insights into an ongoing issue: the conduct of prisoners in the hands of enemy captors and the rules that should govern their treatment.

The book is published by Texas A&M University Press.

    Story
    "Important tales from a Forgotten War"
    Would you listen to Cold Days in Hell: American POWs in Korea again? Why?

    This was a very interesting book about the incredible hardships endured by POW's but also a great overview of the "Forgotten War". I learned very little about this war in history classes so it was fascinating to hear about this important period in history.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I particularly enjoyed hearing the humorous tales of passive resistance by the POW's with their captors.


    What does Capt. Kevin F. Spalding USNR-Ret. bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Capt Spalding has interviewed some of the survivors and has insight into their mental state during this difficult time


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Very sad to hear about the hardships the POW's endured
