Captured soldiers from World War II brought back some of the most gripping stories of all time. Meet a Bataan Death March soldier who survived as a slave laborer by the Japanese from age 16 through 19. Hear his inspiring memoirs that include details such as the POW who saved his life at risk of being killed. Or the story of a ball turret gunner who dared to escape, not once but four times from his German captors. Can he get a message to American forces before his prison is bombed? Learn these stories and others that will inspire patriotism and love of country like no other.
