The Last Repatriate by Matthew Salesses

The Last RepatriateIn 1953, after the end of the Korean War, 23 POWs refused to repatriate to America. THE LAST REPATRIATE tells the story of Theodore Dickerson, a prisoner who eventually returns to his home in Virginia in the midst of the McCarthy Era. He is welcomed back as a hero, though he has not returned unscathed. The lasting effects of the POW camp and troubles with his ex-fiancée complicate his new marriage as he struggles to readjust to the Virginia he holds dear. (Amazon)
