Why Didn t You Get Me Out?: A POW s Nightmare in Vietnam
Why Didn't You Get Me Out?: A POW's Nightmare in Vietnam
by Frank Anton
Frank anton went to Vietnam in 1967 to serve the country he loved. Now, more than thirty years later, he tells the story of how his own government failed him...

For give hellish years, American soldier Frank Anton was held as a POW in Vietnam. Subject to disease, starvation, and physical and psychological torture, Anton and his fellow prisoners held out hope that the U.S. government would find and rescue them.

When he was finally freed in 1973, Anton returned to the United States bruised and battered. And the most devastating blow of all had yet to even be struck. Upon his release, Anton and debriefed by the government and saw both aerial photographs of the prison camps where he was held and a close-us picture of himself walking the grueling Ho Chi Minh Trail. The government had known all along where and when Anton and his fellow soldiers were being held--and made no attempt to rescue them.

now, in this harrowing first-person account and shocking expose, Frank Anton recounts his years as a POW and the aftermath--devoting his life to understanding why and how his own government left him and others to suffer and possibly die in the Vietnamese prison camps. And the answers he's uncovered will forever astound and disturb you.

Spite House : The Last Secret of the War in Vietnam
by Monika Jensen-Stevenson
The story of the last American Marine to return alive from Vietnam after 14 years of incarceration only to be court-martialed on trumped up charges makes one wonder at the injustice suffered by one who should have been welcomed as a hero. And a great story it is - except that it's mostly fiction. If you read this book, make sure you read some of the others that tell the truth!
