James Stockdale led an incredible life. In his own words he describes his upbringing, his early days in the US Naval as a surface warfare officer, his role in the “Gulf of Tonkin” incident, his capture, imprisonment and even the events that led to him disfigurement so he couldn’t be used for propaganda purposes.

His story is an amazing story, well worth your time.  He is a GREAT example of thriving in the bleakest of conditions and ultimately of POST-TRAUMATIC WINNING.
