Book Review/Notes: Through the Valley: My Captivity in Vietnam

Through the Valley: My Captivity in Vietnam by William Reeder Jr.

Finished: January 15th, 2018. Rating: 9/10

Overall Thoughts:

This is a story of resilience. Reeder was shot down during the Vietnam war and spent about a year in captivity as a prisoner of war (POW). During his year as a POW, he endured gangrene, dysentery, 3 kinds of malaria, broken toes, dislocated shoulders, a broken back, and much worse. Not only is this an incredibly moving story about how he survived imprisonment, torture, and war, but how we can all survive and turn our trials into triumphs that change our lives for the better.
