KIRKUS REVIEW

An Andersonville of World War II, this is an expose of the indignities and horrors suffered by fliers shot down over Germany and confined to quarters where only the barest elements of survival were supplied; where Red Cross parcels were held back; rations cut to starvation limits; cold, disease, and every deprivation. Suffering welded bonds stronger than anything could break --a strength in fighting for the rights of man. Based on the author's experiences, this cuts deep into the emotional and spiritual values of the democratic ideal.
