Publisher's Summary

In 1965, Col. Thomas "Jerry" Curtis's helicopter was shot down over North Vietnam. He was immediately captured and spent seven and a half years confined in a filthy cell at the notorious Hanoi prison camp. Thousands of miles from home and unable to communicate with his wife and children, Jerry endured months of solitary confinement, suffocating heat, freezing cold, grueling physical and psychological torture, constant hunger, and unimaginable mental duress.

And yet, time and again, the Light that darkness cannot overcome became his beacon of hope. Now, for the first time, Jerry shares the full story of his 2,703 days in captivity and what he learned about faith, hope, and the indomitable power of the human spirit.

powerful story from a p o w in Vietnam.<br />

I've never been into war stories, but this story was one that I was sure that I would have missed out on had I not read it. the things this man had to endure and was able to with the resiliency of his faith in God was very moving. By the end of this story I was more appreciative of the freedom that soldiers like this have fought for us.
