Summary
Layton was drafted into the army and in 1951 he and thirty-six other soldiers were captured during the Korean War. A daring escape ended their seventeen weeks in captivity, yet Layton's actions caused him decades of guilt. Here he takes readers on a journey through his dismal childhood and agonizing war experiences-- events which eventually found him on the pathway to peace and faith
