Forgotten Soldiers: What Happened to Jacob Walden
A work of historical fiction, Forgotten Soldiers takes you back to the Vietnam War where Air Force pilot Jacob Walden becomes a POW after his plane is hit. Almost forty years later, investigative journalist Ted Pratt meets two mysterious men who tell him the real story of why Jacob Walden never came home. Martin incorporates real events like the U.S. raid on Son Tay prison to give this story added realism.
Forgotten Soldiers starts with a terrific premise and will appeal to history buffs, fans of military fiction, and anyone who is determined not to forget those who still haven’t come home.
