Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

An unforgettable true story, Two Souls Indivisible stirringly recounts the forging of a legendary, heroic bond between two soldiers. Fred Cherry and Porter Halyburton first met in their shared cell in a brutal POW camp in Vietnam. Cherry, an air force pilot, was badly injured after his plane crashed; he became the first black officer to be captured by the North Vietnamese. Halyburton, a young navy flier, was a naive white southerner thrown in as Cherryand#8217;s cellmate. Their captors hoped close quarters would inflame American-bred racial tensions and break both men. Instead, American integrity and honor flourished, and as Cherry was nursed back to health, a friendship grew strong. The intense connection, powerfully reported by James S. Hirsch, would sustain both men through the war and throughout their lives. Inspiring, heartbreaking, remarkable, and never more timely, Two Souls Indivisible shows how good people can achieve greatness in the most hellish of circumstances.

Exceptionally well written account of Vietnam POW's. A poor black boy who was the 1st black pilot, and a well educated southern white boy the Vietnamese captors placed in the same small, dark, dirty cell. The white man was forced to care for the seriously injured black man, because the captors thought the two would be further tormented by the racial issues. The two men learned to trust each other, and despite living in the same cell for less then a year, credit each other for their own survival.
