Author: Frank Anton with Tommy Denton

Title:  Why Didn’t You Get Me Out?

Publisher:  St. Martin's

Reviewer: W. H. McDonald, Jr. – AAA Founder

The real life story of a survivor

I first meet Frank Anton when he and I were in Florida in 2002. We had just landed our Huey helicopter and he came out on the airfield to talk to us. That conversation got me really interested in learning more about his man. He handed me a signed copy of his paperback book, “Why Didn’t You Get Me Out?" I devoured it, much like a starving man might over indulge on his first meal after a long fast. The book hooks your interest from the very beginning. You are pulled into the real life story of a survivor.

He spent five brutal years at the hands of NVA and the VC. He lived in conditions that others would never survive in. He was starved, tortured and held captive while holding out hope that his government would come and get him out of there.

His first person accounts of what happened inside his POW camp and the betrayal a fellow American solider will keep you on the edge of your seat. This is not a fairly tale told by some Hollywood script writer for some Rambo character—this is the real McCoy American hero story.

You will find this to be one of the best accounts of being held captive to come out of the Vietnam War. Certainly this is a must read if you wish to have a fuller understanding of the total history of that period of our nation's history. It will make you question our own government non-actions and responses. It may even have you asking the same question that Frank did, “Why Didn’t You Get Me Out?”
