The most recent episode of War As My Father's Tank Battalion Knew It was about Bob Levine, who recently passed away at the age of 97. It was Bob who said to me, "If you want stories, you've got to interview prisoners of war," and that's what got me started doing just that. Today I'd like you to meet Hal Mapes, one of those POWs.

If you like what you hear, I have a modest request. Since I launched my first web site,, 25 years ago, I've posted hundreds of pages of stories, interviews, whole books and audio clips available for free. Lately the costs of hosting and producing and maintaining content have risen sharply. A small donation, if you can afford it, will help this podcast grow and the audio and print on my web sites expand.
