With candor and humor, American infantryman Jack Dower describes his narly fifteen months spent as an unwilling guest of the Third Reich after his company lost its way behind enemy lines near Anzio, Italy, in February 1944. From forced labor and grueling marches, to the camaraderie shared between fellow prisoners, to a few unexpected instances of decency from German guards, Dower's memoir is a testament to the adaptability and courage of the World War II prisoner of war. The late Jack Dower, a native of Connecticut, served with the 45th Infantry Division in World War II.
