"No one has studied the American POW experience more thoroughly than Robert C. Doyle, and with this book he has again shown us the beauty and heroism in the heart of the American POW who refuses to knuckle under. A Prisoner's Duty is a book not merely for those interested in military history but for anyone who wishes to understand the true essence of human freedom." --William J. Miller, editor, Civil War magazine
