Based on the true story of Charles Plumb, Navy fighter pilot, who endured almost 6 years of captivity after being shot down over North Viet Nam, this easy to read autobiography covers childhood, enlistment, marriage, war and ultimately, imprisonment. Through faith in God, discipline instilled by the military and simple pride in his country, Charlie finds creative ways to keep his mind busy, and thus is able to endure years of torture and extreme loneliness to overcome his circumstances and survive. This is a signed copy that is housed in our Special Collections and is definitely worth the read.
