After reading the grown up version Defiant I wanted a young adult book for my middle school humanities class I LOVED defiant It was well written and helped me understand the horrors these men endured imprisoned at the infamous Hanoi Hilton Captured was poorly written I found two typos in chapter one The story sort of plodded along never really gaining any ground I got the YA version to try and avoid a lot of swears for school but still wanting the students to gain an understanding into what happened to the POW s Their treatment was detailed later in the book but to grab a YA reader sometimes they need a bit of reality right away The uiz wasn t really described Use YA appropriate language but let these kids know what these men suffered Overall I felt very disappointed after looking forward to having my whole class read this book together Oh and there are still swears not that I super care but I would rather a kid hear gruesome scenes of torture as a POW than throwing a few swears in there for shock value at school Maybe I will just have them read some excerpts from the real deal not this watered down kids version YA can and should still be written well This one seemed rushed and poorly thought through

This was my generation. We wore POW bracelets. My friend's father was MIA. One of the big lessons I took away was the fact that since the US Congress had not formally declared war on Viet Nam, any military personnel captured by the Viet Cong were treated as criminals, not POW's who would have been subject to treatment outlined by the Geneva Convention.
