40 years ago, American POWs held by North Vietnam began to come home, having endured torture and savage treatment by their captors. their detention, the longest in American military history, had run nearly 9 years for some of the prisoners. In spite of the years of brutal torture, savage beatings, starvation and even the murder of some of their fellow POWs by their captors, most manage to keep to the U.S. Code of Conduct set down for POWs by military law.

How do they do it?

 Answers to that and other questions about their time in the “Hanoi Hilton” can be found in a new book by Peter Fretwell and Taylor Baldwin Kiland titled Lessons From The Hanoi Hilton. The authors will join John D. Gresham on Military Monday, to discuss their book and the true stories of leadership and heroism in the depravity of the North Vietnamese POW camps.
