Former Senator Jeremiah Denton appeared on G. Gordon Liddy’s radio program to talk about his book When Hell Was in Session (WND Books; 7 edition (November 1, 2009). In the book, which was first published in 1976, Admiral Denton discussed his years as a POW in Vietnam and his efforts to inform the outside world about what was happening at the Hanoi Hilton. This new and updated edition of his book includes an epilogue about the culture shocks he received upon coming home.

On July 18, 1965, Jeremiah Denton was shot down near Thanh Hoa. He spent almost eight years as the senior American officer to serve as a Vietnam POW. During a 1966 television interview arranged by the North Vietnamese, he blinked in Morse Code, spelling out ‘T-O-R-T-U-R-E’ with his eyes: the first confirmation Americans in Vietnam faced torture. After his release in 1973, he was promoted to rear admiral and then represented Alabama in the U.S. Senate from 1981 to 1987. He is the founder and president of the Admiral Jeremiah Denton Foundation. close
