Wow, what a pleasant surprise. I received a copy of this book from a friend and began reading it, expecting a discussion of a theology-based spiritual journey. As a former military guy myself, I found the military details, the description of challenges and decisions associated with being a military officer under the described conditions, to be a gripping story, equalling as interesting as how these circumstances worked together to bring the author to a belief in God. The big-picture reflections from someone who was looking back on a long, productive yet typically-American (aside from the Bataan experience) life helped me to gain insight into some of my own experiences. if you can find a copy, this one is one worth reading.
