Give Us This Day by Sidney Stewart

In April 1942, Sidney Stewart, a 21-year-old U.S. Army enlisted man, was captured at Bataan. For nearly three and a half years, until he was liberated by the Russians in Manchuria, he remained a prisoner of war. Here is his account of this long and terrifying captivity. It is one of the most harrowing and debilitating chronicles that I have read. . . . He describes the ordeal brilliantly; he harbors no resentments apparently, and he has emerged from an inferno of bestiality with utter serenity. ? Maxwell Geismar, Saturday Review An impressive and moving book. ? David Dempsey, New York Times His is no ordinary prisoner-of-war story; better written than most, it contains no tales of swashbuckling defiance. . . . The force of this book is its testimony to the indomitable strength of the human spirit. ? Manchester Guardian The plain narrative of this story would by itself have been fascinating, but this book is far more than a story, it is a work of art. ? Andr?? Siegfried, Academie Francaise Sidney Stewarts composed narrative is one of the most noble documents ever penned by a prisoner of war. The companions he writes about remained men to the end, until at last only one man remained; he survived to write this unforgettable, this magnificent story. ? George Slocombe, New York Herald Tribune [Paris
