Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Limbo on the Yalu... and Beyond!

This book is based on a true story about a man, Ted Sprouse, and his experiences being a Prisoner of War in the Korean War. It is based on the manuscripts he had written. It gives a real understanding of what our men had to go through to protect the liberty so much of us take for granted. It is a very touching and inspirational book, leaving you feeling proud and in awe of what soldiers had to endure.
