ABSTRACT
The article relates the personal experience of a U.S. soldier who was held captive for more than two years by the Chinese communists during the Korean war in the 1950s. It depicts the agonizing pain, mental torture and solitary confinement that the soldier experienced during his captivation. It describes the efforts by Chinese military officials to force him to confess the violation of the Chinese border law and urge him to become a communist propagandist. It offers a look at the Chinese-communist technique of brainwashing.
