This book is destined to become the classic POW story. If you want one of the five best books ever written about the POWs, this has to top your list. . . . It is a literary gem that places you not just on the scene but in the soul of a POW. It is that rare book that I know I will re-read again and again.

I sat down and spent four hours straight reading it-- it's truly a wonderful job. You have a gift.
- F. Carney
I love it. It is the best and most beautifully written WWII memoir I have ever read.

Having just concluded my reading (thanks for the sleepless night) I ventured to the computer to write a short note. . . . While the final pages might be permanently stained with tears of gratitude, I can honestly say that this book will forever have it's place of significant impact in my heart. I haven't been this emotionally moved since I looked into my wife's eyes after the birth of our twin children.

How does one read through the tears?

I finished your absolutely powerful book! It was marvelous!
- K. Clopton
You write of your dad's experiences so beautifully and poetically (and accurately, of course!)
- W. Bartsch
It was so well written and descriptive that you can't help but put yourself in the story.
- L. B. Cole
The contents of this book will someday have an impact within the walls of government, acadamia, museums, and more. . . .Your conclusion had a great impact on me and I wept. . . . This book will certainly be a cherished item in our collection.
- M. Wallace
It is a real contribution to the literature on World War II in the Philippines (and on the homefront) and the POW experience, as well as a moving tribute to your dad. High quality production, too.

I have times when I am so interested in the story I cannot put it down and then there are times that I get to wondering how [your dad] survived and I have to take a break and think about that for awhile.
