Debunking common myths about American POWs during the Korean War, the author of We Were Each Others Prisoners sheds new light on the true-life experences of veterans of the conflict in a compelling oral history. Reprint. 10,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave
The Korean War POW remains the most maligned victim of all American wars. For nearly half a century, the media, general public, and even scholars have described hundreds of these prisoners as "brainwashed" victims of a heinous enemy who had uncharacteristically caved in to their Communist captors or, even worse, as turncoats who betrayed their fellow soldiers. In either case, these boys apparently lacked the "right stuff" required of our brave sons.
Dr. Carlson debunks these popular myths in this captivating oral history. From the Tiger Death March to the paranoia here at home, Korean War POWs suffered injustices on a scale few can comprehend. Here, at long last, is a chance to hear the true story of these brave men in their own words--a story that, until now, has gone largely untold.
