An outstanding read of a man's struggle whilst held captive for 5 years in Vietnam. The mental and physical pain is so thoughtfully and powerfully written. Remarkable.

Really thought provoking read. Well written and the detail is amazing considering the situation.
A different angle on most war stories.

I have read a good number of books about Vietnam POWs and this is undoubtedly one of the best. The reader does not need an extensive knowledge of the conflict to get the best out of this heartwarming tale.

This is a interesting book, it is worth a read if you are into this topic. Quite reasonably priced too.

I was with COL Rowe when they brought him back on active duty in 1976 to teach at FUSAAIS. "From one Green Beret to Another" is how he signed by copy. When he was assassinated in 1989, all of Special Forces wept.

This book was written as a true reflection of the ordeal that Nick Rowe was subjected to during his stay with the Vietcong. Since his return, he campaigned for more money to be made available for the training of US Special forces and was eventually sent of a secret mission for the CIA. It was here that it is thaught that Nick was assasinated on behalf of the CIA to prevent the added campaigning for money. It was proving to be an embarrasment for the US Governmant.
