Library Journal Review

Zellers, a newly married Methodist missionary, was captured by the North Koreans on June 25, 1950. From the first day of the ``police action'' to the last he, along with several other civilians, endured the most inhumane treatment imaginable, comparable to the Japanese treatment of American POWs on Bataan during World War II. Zellers was beaten, starved, and nearly executed out of hand on several occasions. Along with soldiers of the U.S. 24th Infantry Division, he was marched 120 miles through North Korea on a ``Death March.'' Totally unprepared for the onset of winter, hundreds froze to death along the way. Zellers was finally imprisoned for the duration along the Chinese border. His compelling portrayal of his comrades and their experiences is a unique tale of civilians trapped in war. Recommended.--David Lee Poremba, Detroit P.L. (c) Copyright 2010.
