Read full description of the books:



This was more of a story of a Vietnam Vet who returned to the US and created a dysfunctional family. I don't mean to take away from the bravery and service to his country that Col. James Thompson displayed; his fortitude to continue to live under the worse of circumstances. But the author doesn't go into depth of what Thompson endured. Perhaps he couldn't because Thompson couldn't explore that as either. It was good that the other vets were able to fill in the blanks, but they didn't come into the picture for several years after Thompson had been captured and endured solitary confinement. There seemed to be no malice or ill thoughts towards his captors that so many returning vets had to work through. Yet, the interviews with his comrades did show some discrepancies on Thompson as a leader of his men. It seemed he was unprepared for leadership both during and after the war, though he felt he should be based on his POW status. Unfortunately, Thompson didn't make use of the opportunity afforded him to gain promotions. And then his alcoholism and attitude tore apart his family, but his wife was also put into a unusual situation not knowing for years if he was dead or alive. It's amazing that his family was able to pick up the pieces as well as they did.
