Michael P. Spradlin  - Prisoner of War

Prisoner of War

A Novel of World War II

Author: Michael P. Spradlin

  • AGES 10 - 13 
  • Genre Historical Fiction
Survive the war. Outlast the enemy. Stay alive. That's what Henry Forrest has to do. When he lies about his age to join the marines, Henry never imagines he'll face anything worse than his own father's cruelty. But his unit is shipped off to the Philippines, where the heat is unbearable, the conditions are brutal, and Henry's dreams of careless adventuring are completely dashed.

Then the Japanese invade the islands, and U.S. forces there surrender. As a prisoner of war, Henry faces one horror after another. Yet among his fellow captives, he finds kindness, respect, and even brotherhood. It's a glimmer of light in the darkness, and he'll need to hold tight to the hope they offer if he wants to win the fight for his country, his freedom, and his life.

Michael P. Spradlin's novel of struggle and survival explores the harsh realities of life as a POW on the Pacific front during World War II.
