"U.S. Army Special Forces Captain Floyd James ('Jimm') Thompson grew up dreaming of battlefield glory. In late December 1963, Thompson left behind three young daughters and a pregnant wife to go to Vietnam. Three months later, on the day before Alyce gave birth to their son, the Vietcong captured Thompson not far from the Laotian border. While many of his fellow Americans had barely heard of the small jungle nation in Southeast Asia, Jim Thompson was already a prisoner. For the next nine years- five in solitary confinement- he endured starvation, loneliness, and unspeakable cruelties."Signed by Author. Trade Paperback. Very Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
