Until now, no book has been available about the WWII POW experience from the perspective of a midlevel commander. Colonel Alexander's unique memoir combines the military and political insight of an officer aware of his superiors' strategy with the bare emotion of a man suffering the terror of imprisonment. His account has been quoted and referenced by countless World War II historians; now, through the careful editing of Dominic Caraccilo, his memoir is available in its entirety for all students of World War II -- professional and amateur.
