About the Movie Based on true stories collected from more than 100 POWs, the film focuses on the strong bonds that develop among the Americans as they try to resist their captors. For most combat soldiers, Vietnam was a grunt’s-eye-view battlefield war of guns and grenades. But for thousands of American combatants, the battlefield was a dark, vermin-infested cell in a prison compound like Hoa Lo, the hellhole POWs called “The Hanoi Hilton.” With operations in 90 international territories, Warner Home Video, a Warner Bros.
