In a newspaper interview several years after his release, Shively said, "I had the opportunity to be captured, the opportunity to be interrogated, the opportunity to be tortured and the experience of answering questions under torture. It was an extremely humiliating experience. I felt sorry for myself. But I learned the hard way life isn't fair. Life is only what you make of it."
Written by Shively's stepdaughter Amy Hawk - whose mother Nancy ultimately reunited with and married Shively in a triumphant love story - and based on extensive audio recordings and Shively's own journals, Six Years at the Hanoi Hilton is a haunting, riveting portrayal of life as an American prisoner of war trapped on the other side of the world.

Wish I had met him
This nation raises leaders of this caliber and this book makes us aware that they are out there. I was in the USAF and came across a former POW, I asked him " what did they do to you? " he simply replied, "what didn't they do to me?" I can't forget his reply. Your book fills in the " what". Excellent reading.

Such an incredible story of an American Hero. I was glued to the book 100% of the time. I'm already searching for similar accounts from other POWs in Vietnam hoping to learn more. Extremely gripping and I'm in awe of the strength and life Jim Shively had. Highly Recommend!!!
