Many Americans captured by the Japanese during WWII were airmen from ill-fated missions of B-24 Bombers. The aircraft was known as the Liberator. Their captors considered these men as slaves rather than Prisoners of War, and they subjected these men to an inhumane and brutal existence. The scars the POWs received, both physically and emotionally, were severe, and the emotional shackles would, for many, take years to break.
BREAKING LIBERATOR’S SHACKLES the main character, Grant Metzger, has coped with his post-war shackles by trying to forget. When his son Doug, a Green Beret, receives orders to deploy to Vietnam, Grant’s terrors of his own past resurface. His concern and love for his son ignites fears. By reliving his own story to his son, could he provide Doug a perspective that might help him survive should he be captured by the Viet Cong? Grant, for the first time following his release, tells his story, and in doing so breaks his shackles.
As author Diana Wilder stated in her review on Amazon for this novel, “This is a story of courage, of love and of healing…”
