Praise

Advance praise for The Special Prisoner

"This account of an American prisoner of war in
Japanese hands rings with truth. Lehrer, himself a Marine,
has captured the reality of what it was like. The brutality, the sadism, the horror, and, above all else, the triumph of will that got
the prisoners through the experience are all here. Lehrer’s book is honest, factual, and a tribute to the men who endured and
prevailed over the worst existence imaginable."
–Stephen E. Ambrose

"Riveting…I couldn’t put this book down! The Special Prisoner delves into the full complexity of human evil and revenge."
–Iris Chang, author of The Rape of Nanking

"Gripping…a harrowing novel of redemption and revenge."
–Library Journal
