If you are a history buff, as Mr. Wilson surely is, and you want a glimpse into what happened to prisoners taken by the Japanese during World War II, then you need to read Breaking Liberator’s Shackles. It gently guides you through an American Airman’s perspective as he relives his nightmare of the War in the Pacific. Undoubtedly, reoccurring dreams, termed post-traumatic stress syndrome today, follows the person for the rest of his/her life, to cope they often push the unpleasant memories into the deep recesses of their minds only to find that by sharing their story they can break those haunting shackles. This is a poignant story, immersing the reader into the depths of solitude where only the prisoner’s wits and strong faith in God keeps them alive.
Nearly a generation later, the Airman embarks on a journey to tell his son what really happened all those years ago in an attempt to prepare him for his tour of duty in the Viet Nam jungle. The Airman knows that the details of the story will not come easy so he takes his son on a fishing trip to a well-known area that reminds them both of a more pleasant time. War is hell, but Mr. Wilson makes this remarkable story a lesson in hope and faith…and survival under the cruelest of circumstances; may this be the tribute Mr. Wilson intended to all World War II participants!
