When Hell Was in Session
Admiral Jeremiah A. Denton
By Admiral Jeremiah A. Denton
Adm. Jeremiah Denton was introduced to the nation in an extraordinary TV interview in 1966 in which he blinked in Morse code the word "t-o-r-t-u-r-e" to alert military intelligence to his plight at the infamous Hanoi Hilton during the Vietnam War.
Denton, whose Navy A-6E Intruder jet was shot down over the North Vietnamese stronghold of Thanh Hoa, recounted his remarkable struggle to survive eight years of brutal captivity in a classic book that WND Books is reissuing today, Veterans Day, including a major new section written by Denton for today's generation.

In the new "When Hell was in Session," the former U.S. senator and legendary American military hero tells the rest of the story, starting with the shock he experienced upon his return to the United States in 1973 to find his beloved nation had drastically changed since his capture in 1965.
"I saw the appearance of X-rated movies, adult magazines, massage parlors, the proliferation of drugs, promiscuity, pre-marital sex, and unwed mothers."
That scenario, he writes, was coupled with "the tumultuous post-war Vietnam political events, starting with Congress forfeiting our military victory, thus betraying our victorious American and allied servicemen and women, who had won the war at great cost of blood and sacrifice."
See the ABC News report with video of Denton's 1966 "t-o-r-t-u-r-e" interview, as well as his stirring comments upon touching down back in America after 8 years in captivity:
After his release in 1973, Denton was promoted to rear admiral and in 1980 was elected to the United States Senate where he worked with President Reagan to fight communism in Latin America and was a key leader in helping promote the Reagan Revolution.The new material in this "When Hell was in Session" reveals an inside account of a little-known, but highly influential and intriguing chapter in the nation's battle against communism. New details include:
- Denton's stunning showdown with communist leaders in Nicaragua where he warned them that this was not Vietnam and President Reagan was not President Johnson;
- His Oval Office meeting with President Reagan where he proposed a comprehensive strategy for confronting communism in Nicaragua, a plan that Reagan accepted and implemented;
- His stark warning of what awaits America if it does not return to its moral foundation.
"When Hell Was in Session" serves as an important reminder that America remains free because of the courage, commitment and conviction of brave heroes like Admiral Jeremiah Denton.
