Description
After their submarine is hit by an aerial torpedo on April 23, 1943, the crew of the USS Grenadier bring their vessel to the surface—only to be captured by the Japanese. This history focuses on the fates of four teenaged American POWS, who joined the military to escape the privations of the Great Depression, only to find far greater suffering in the brutal Fukuoka prison camp. After their eventual liberation and return to civilian life, these young men are haunted by their experiences, and disappointed by their reception in a world that had given them up for dead.

"Intimate and epic, unblinking and even-handed, [Larry] Colton's engrossing story strips sentimentality and cliché from our notion of hero."—Ron Shelton
