During the Vietnam War, then-Capt. John Borling survived six years and eight months of soul-crushing imprisonment in the Hanoi Hilton by writing poetry—without pencil or paper. Instead, Borling shared his creations with fellow captives by their only means of communication—the forbidden POW tap code. Retired Air Force Maj. Gen. Borling’s book, Taps on the Walls—published in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of his release—contains all the poems Borling created during his confinement.
