"(T)ells the story of the men who, from the days of the Hundred Years War to the present day, were captives in wartime. It is a tale that does humanity little credit. Prisoners ha ve been starved, tortured, brainwashed, and housed in conditions that would shame a civilian jail. Here you will find the true story of captors' inhumanity to captives throughout the ages as well as the efforts of the Red Cross to lessen the t o r t u r e. Yet throughout the narrative runs a stirring heart-beat of courage." Interior - light browning to pages, otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - light browning to edges of text block, two very small d in ts o n fr on t cover. Very Good.
