With more and more stories of terror and scandal taking over newspapers and television screens, America is in desperate need of hope and inspiration.
Regnery History’s new book Six Years in the Hanoi Hilton: An Extraordinary Story of Courage and Survival in Vietnam, is the incredible story of Captain James Shively – a Vietnam POW who survived against all odds for six years in captivity.
Written by his daughter, with a foreword by prison mate Senator John McCain, Captain Shively’s story is the epitome of an American hero. Shively’s story is one of ultimate inspiration: despite brutal treatment in prison, the contemplation of suicide, and his beloved girlfriend moving on back home, he somehow found hope – proving, in his words, that “Life is only what you make of it.”
Escaping prison and eventually reuniting with his long-lost love, Six Years in the Hanoi Hilton is an encouraging story of hope and love that America needs in this negative news cycle.
