    One thought on “Escape from Laos”

    1. Seeing the movie Rescue Dawn, starring Christian Bale & Steve Zahn (in a non-comedic role!)spurred me to read Deiter Dengler's own words about his experience.The movie does a fairly good job portraying Dieter's own story, except for some discrepencies in Dieter's relationships with other POWs (probably for dramatic effect) and editing some of the details in Escape from Laos (to keep the pace moving). You could watch the movie to get the jist of Dieter's experience but if you want more detail [...]

    2. While I tend to avoid real-life-themed works in fiction, I do enjoy reading history books, biographies and memoirs. Lately, I've been on a history-biography-memoir kick.Escape From Laos is Dieter Dengler's account of the time he spent as a POW in Laos, including his escape. This was an easy, interesting read. I read it in part because I just finished John McCain's Faith of My Fathers, which covers his five years as a POW in Vietnam; and also because I saw the movie Rescue Dawn about a year ago. [...]

    3. I admit that parts of this book were difficult to read. The things that prisoners of war have to endure are beyond my comprehension. It is enlightening to know that in the world, there are those that still try and show a bit kindness to captives, though perhaps not the majority. The description of their trek through the jungle had me squirming in my chair. The survival instinct is real. I couldn't put the book down until the end. My heart broke with Dieter's, I cried, was overjoyed at "luck" tha [...]

    4. More accounts of his capture and escape than "Hero Found" but a bit shorter. Hero Found goes into more of his childhood and death. Both must reads though

    5. The documentary about Dieter Dengler is really good, too. It is called,"Little Dieter Needs To Fly".There is a Hollywood version of Dieter's POW and escape experience. It is called,"Rescue Dawn". They took some liberties with this movie. It seemed like they wanted to make it a mainstream action/drama. Christian Bale is pretty easy to watch so, I liked it.Dieter Dengler was such an amazing and interesting character. He really seemed like one of a kind. After reading his book, researching him on t [...]

    6. My dad has been raving about this book for years, and I finally borrowed it off him after seeing Werner Herzog's excellent "Rescue Dawn" film which was based on this book. It's an easy read and a compelling story. It's also a totally apolitical look at the Vietnam war, and is more about one man's struggle to overcome adversity, rather than about the politics that got him there. Worth tracking down

    7. No self aggrandisement in this book. This guy used his brains and wasn't going to let anything or anybody get in his way to escape. He barely made it but the whole book was a page turner. It was made into a movie called "Rescue Dawn" which is currently playing on cable. The book is more harrowing than the movie and the movie was bad enough.

    8. This US pilot, Dieter Dengler, gives his account of being shot down in Laos during the Vietnam War and his five month ordeal of marching through the jungle, being mistreated by his captors, living in a prison camp, escaping, and then trying to get rescued. I wanted to read it after seeing the movie that depicts his story - 'Rescue Dawn'. It's an easy yet eye-opening and inspiring read.

    9. Easy read but definitely engrossing. After watching "Rescue Dawn" and realizing Werner Herzog's distortion of the truth (in the name of his supposed "ecstatic truth") I go this book and didn't regret it. When you read what this guy went through, you'll never complain about your own life ! His determination and optimism are also inspiring.

    10. This book gave really good insight into what a prison camp in the Far East would be like. The story is uplifting and has that type of "the human spirit is indestructable" thing going on. And it actually happened.
