During a time of war, pilots face the risk of being shot down behind enemy lines and captured. For this reason, each pilot receives training to help him endure the stresses of captivity. During an interrogation, this training and the pilot's own strength and willpower are invaluable. This book discusses many of the techniques used to survive the experience of being in captivity. A captive pilot must be prepared to cope with boredom, resist interrogation, and work as a team with other prisoners. In addition, he must know how to go about escaping if he has the opportunity. Discover: * how some U.S. pilots in Vietnam coped with seven years of imprisonment. * how interrogators try to trick people into talking. * how interrogators are trained to detect lies. * survival techniques during escape. * tracking skills used by escaping pilots and the pursuing enemy.
