Five Years to Freedom: The True Story of a Vietnam POW by James N. Rowe

* First hand account of a US officer captured by the Viet Cong *Details the remarkable story of his time as a PoW and his eventual escape *Reveals the terrible psychological and physical suffering he endured When Green Beret Lieutenant James N. Rowe was captured in 1963 in Vietnam, his life became more than a matter of staying alive. In a Vietcong POW camp, Rowe endured beri-beri, dysentery, and tropical fungus diseases. He suffered grueling psychological and physical torment. He experienced the loneliness and frustration of watching his friends die. And he struggled every day to maintain faith in himself as a soldier and in his country just as everything appeared to be turning against him. By turns harrowing and triumphant, Five Years to Freedom is an unforgettable true story of survival- and testimony to the disciplined human spirit.
