Journalist La Croix and photographer Meyer provide the contexts but let the 19 soldiers, who now make weekly visits to a Veterans' Administration support group, talk for themselves about how it was in German prisoner-of-war camps. Their unique double experience of war, in combat and in the camps, their efforts to survive, the coincidences that saved them, the friends they lost, and their homecomings are compelling reading, particularly as some served as naturalized US citizens and two were Jewish. La Croix is eloquent in their support without upstaging them, and the result is honest, unflinching and compelling. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
