A story untold. Left in the dark. For seventy years. This novel tells that story, shines a light on that darkness.
They were beaten, starved, and kept in cages with little medical care. The Chinese POW camps of the Korean War brought out the best, and the worst, in men. Young Swede fights for himself and his fellow captives, determined to survive with his pride and honor intact. First, he has to survive the deathly cold of the first winter, when half the prisoners die. Once he is allowed to join the other prisoners, he teaches them to resist, becoming one of the worst of the men the Chinese fear – the Reactionaries.
Described by readers as “hard to put down,” “riveting,” and “a towering novel.”
Forgotten for seventy years. Now is their time to be remembered.
