Summary
On 20 September 1965 Airman First Class Bill Robinson, a helicopter mechanic, was shot down in North Vietnam. He spent more than seven years in multiple North Vietnamese prison camps. For his actions in Vietnam Robinson received the Air Cross, one of only twenty-three enlisted men ever to earn that honour, and no enlisted man in American military history has been held longer as a prisoner of war. The book presents a detailed account of Robinson's early years and devotes substantial coverage to his postrelease life
