review 1: I did not know before reading this biographical story of this soldier's hostage experience that she was the first African-american female soldier POW. It is an interesting read, not only for the POW experience, but also for her account of her life before and after, her decision to become a soldier, her experiences in boot camp, being shipped overseas, and dealing with the lingering affects of her combat injuries, both physical and mental. The story is well-written and captivating. Her experience is certainly relevant to the problems experienced overseas and at home by our troops who have fought more recently in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I'm glad that after all of these years, she finally decided to tell her story as a POW, as well as her life after she returned. less
