Summary
Growing up in post World War II Germany, Dieter Dengler, the son of a Nazi slain during the war, dreamed about becoming a pilot. At age 18 he emigrated to the United States and worked odd jobs until he was accepted into the Navy and began pilot training. He was sent to Vietnam around 1966 and on his first mission was shot down and taken prisoner. There, the Vietcong tortured him until Dengler engineered a hair-raising escape and eventually returned to the U.S. His story is recounted here via interviews with Dengler, and with the Air Corps pilot, Eugene P. Deatrick, Jr., who spotted Dengler during his escape
