Soldier Escapes Jungle Prison and Must Survive Wilderness – Insane True Story – Two and a half minutes.
It’s June 29th, 1966 and for months the prisoners have watched the guards.
noted details, memorized routines and made maps of the POW camp using pebbles. Now it’s all down to
Dieter. Two and a half minutes is all the time he has before the guards return from retrieving
their evening meal from the kitchen hut. A prisoner acting as lookout flashes Dieter
the go signal. He yanks the pre-loosened logs up from the floor of his hut and squeezes
through a small opening. He crawls through the secret tunnel under the fence surrounding the
prisoner huts. He sneaks into a guard shack where he quickly snatchs up a couple of rifles.
By now other prisoners are escaping. Dieter hands out the rifles and the prisoners scatter.
Angry yells from the direction of the kitchen hut. The guards have realized that an escape
is underway. They scramble towards Dieter. One shoots, sending a bullet whizzing just over
Dieter’s head. He fires back and drops the guard. But he’s out numbered, the swarm of enraged guards
is closing in. No way can Dieter shoot them all. As a young boy in Germany, Dieter Dengler
witnessed Allied bombings of his village and decided that he was going to
be a fighter pilot when he grew up. After a long slough of immigrating to the
US, enduring a stint in the US Air Force, college, and graduating from the US Navy aviation
cadet program, Dieter finally became a pilot. He then underwent further instruction, training as
an attack pilot to fly the Douglas AD Skyraider. After training, Dieter was stationed aboard
the aircraft carrier the USS Ranger off the coast of Vietnam. It was here that he
joined an ill-fated secret operation that would result in him becoming a POW.
On February 1, 1966 just after 9 am, 4 Skyraiders take off from the USS Ranger. They
fly in formation at 10,000 feet on a classified mission to bomb targets in North Vietnam.
When Dieter reaches the target, an anti-aircraft battery, he drops ordinance. The
air defence system fires back, blasting the right wing of his plane with a 75 mm shell. A second
shell hits his engine–it sputters and dies. ‘Mayday! Mayday!” Dieter shouts into his
radio as he begins to fall out of the sky. He makes a split second decision not to parachute,
worrying that he’ll be an easy target for hostiles to shoot down. Thankfully Dieter is able to
guide his damaged plane towards a clearing in the jungle. As he plummets, he tosses flight
charts, authenticator codes, and other classified materials out of the cockpit so they won’t be
found. The plane hits a couple of trees and breaks apart. Dieter tumbles about the cockpit as the
fuselage cartwheels several times. His helmet is yanked from his head and a large piece of broken
glass from the windscreen slams into his skull. Dieter wakes up in his cockpit about 100 feet
(30.5 meters) from the rest of the wreckage. His head’s bleeding; he has a concussion,
he’s banged up and a huge purple bruise is blooming on his left knee. However, he still
has on his survival vest and waist pack. Dieter starts to crawl. The crash made a
thunderous racket. He knows he has to get away before anyone shows up. Eventually he gets to his
feet. He stumbles through the jungle until he’s maybe half a mile (.8 km) from the crash site.
Dieter then inspects his wounds. He bandages his knee and cleans his bleeding head as best he
can, removing a large shard of glass. He inspects his compass and considers heading west towards
Thailand which is a US ally. But then again, that’s what the enemy would expect him to
do. Dieter decides to go north towards the Meekong River which he estimates is some
30 miles (48 km) away. If he isn't rescued after a few days, he’ll head towards Thailand.
For the next several hours Dieter wanders through the jungle, evading other humans. At night
he tries to bunk down in his sleeping bag, but hardly gets any rest as he is attacked
by countless mosquitoes and other insects. The next day Dieter tries to signal planes
flying overhead, but they don’t see him. Dieter continues his march through the jungle,
but makes a huge error. He ignores the traditional survival advice to avoid trails and watering holes
because that’s where he’d be most likely to run into other humans. Exhausted from hacking through
the brush, Dieter walks on an established path. Unfortunately he runs right into some Pathet Lao
troops — pro-communist Laotians. They immediately take him hostage. They tie Dieter’s hands with
rope and search him, taking his watch, compass and going through his rucksack. He chatters at them in
German hoping to convince them that he’s a German, not a US soldier, but they just seem confused.
That night the guards drive big stakes into the ground and spread-eagle Dieter between them.
Tied up, Dieter can’t prevent leeches crawling up his legs. The next few days are a blur, Dieter
is marched through the jungle at a punishing pace and tied up every night. His guards feed him
poorly cooked sticky rice and he drinks unfiltered river water. Eventually, Dieter’s original
captors hand him off to a guerrilla group and he ends up in a village where a
province chief speaks fluent French. Dieter speaks some French and is glad to be able
to communicate. The chief spends hours talking to Dieter about places he’s visited in Europe.
He makes sure that Dieter is treated well. For the first time in about a week, Dieter
gets a full meal, he’s allowed to bathe and his various injuries are treated. At night he’s
allowed to sleep on a mat without being tied up. But then the chief demands that Dieter
sign a document stating that the US is deliberately bombing women and children
and although Dieter disagrees with the policy, he is forced to fly on these missions by the
U.S. government. When Dieter refuses to sign, the chief turns him over to some guards.
They beat Dieter until he blacks out. Dieter is revived when the guards splash water
on him. They tie him to a water buffalo and whip it into a trot. Dieter is dragged
throughout the village much to the merriment of a crowd. His clothes and skin shred.
Dieter’s given a second chance to sign the document condemning the US’s actions, but
still refuses. At dawn, the guerillas leave, taking Dieter with them. Again Dieter spends
a long day marching through the jungle. At night Dieter manages to escape and
hides on a hilltop. But as the sun rises, Dieter becomes extremely thirsty. He cuts up
a succulent and tries drinking the liquid, but the plant is poisonous. Dieter’s cheeks
go numb and his throat swells shut. Desperate, Dieter stumbles down the cliff. He’s drinking at
a watering hole when the Pathet Lao catch him. Angry that he escaped, the guerillas torture him.
They twist his arms and hang him upside down from a tree. They beat him. They smear honey on
Dieter’s face and position a nest of black stinging ants under him. Dieter drifts in and out
of consciousness. At night, Dieter is lowered into a small cave full of water. He spends the night
numb, shivering in the cold. The guerillas hand Dieter over to some North Vietnamese soldiers
who march him to a POW camp. It’s Feb 14th, it’s only been 14 days since Dieter crashed.
The primitive POW camp is run by a different group of Pathet Lao. The guards imprison Dieter in
a tiny, rickety prisoner hut filled with spider’s nests. The hut is dark and hot. Light gets in
through cracks and a few slats in the door. After the guards leave, prisoners in the hut next door
whisper to Dieter. There are six other prisoners: pilot Duane Martin, aircrew Gene DeBruin, Chinese
radio operator To Yick Chiu, nicknamed ‘YC’ and three Thai cargo shippers, Prasit Thanee,
Prasit Promsuwan and Pisidhi Indradat. Dieter is stunned to learn that 2 of the
prisoners had been imprisoned for over 2 years. Some of the POWS have tried to escape before,
but were recaptured and severely punished. Dieter tells them that he is going to escape as
soon as possible, but the others advise Dieter to wait for the monsoon season, which generally
starts in May. He will be harder to track in the rain and fresh water will be easier to come by.
Dieter soon settles into a grim routine. Days are spent mainly in the fetid huts. Prisoners are
briefly let out to use the latrine and have a little fresh air. Periodically the guards take
a prisoner to the North Vietnamese soldiers for interrogation. Prasit Thanee who speaks Laotian,
Vietnemese and English acts as translator. The guards use any pretext to viciously beat
the prisoners. They often play cruel mind games such as suddenly firing guns without
ammo at the prisoners to see them flinch. The POWs keep their spirits up by having
discussions at night regarding history, religion, etc. Dieter makes a chess set out of bamboo and
rocks and teaches the other prisoners how to play. Each evening, the guards lock each prisoner into
wooden foot blocks so they can’t escape while the guards are asleep. The prisoners fashion makeshift
keys which they keep hidden in their underwear, knowing that the guards won’t search
there. Every night, they secretly unlock themselves and only get back into their
restraints at dawn before the guards wake up. The prisoners’ meals are small portions of
rice. Dieter secretly begins to dry out and hide rice to prepare for escape.
Not longer after Dieter arrives, the prisoners are moved to a newly built
POW compound several miles from the old one. The new compound is hidden deeper in the
jungle and is even harder to see from the air. A fifteen-foot (4.6 meter) woven bamboo fence
encircles the camp. There’s a single guarded gate which opens to a dirt path. Outside
the fence at both ends of the compound are thirty-foot (9.1 meters) guard towers that
overlook the yard. Also outside the fence are several guard huts and a kitchen hut as well
as camp latrine. A small stream trickles nearby. In the stockade are two elevated log and bamboo
prisoner huts with thatched, leaf-covered roofs. Each is about eighteen feet long (5.5 meters) and
six feet wide (1.8 meters). The guards split the prisoners into two groups. The three Americans
in one hut, and the three Thai prisoners and YC in the other. The arrangement actually helps
to lessen tension between the prisoners, as of late the Americans have been suspicious about
Prasit talking to the guards behind their backs. The prisoners quickly slip back into their
normal, monotonous routine Each morning the prisoners are woken up early and get a trip to
the latrine. Around 9 am they are given rice for a quick breakfast and afterwards return to their
huts. In the evening they again are given rice. Months go by. The rains do not come.
By mid June a famine is growing; the guerrillas are no longer able to get rice
from nearby villages. They start catching rats, tadpoles and wild pig for food. Of course, the
prisoners are fed the worst parts of the animals. Over several days, Dieter secretly weakens
the flooring of his hut by pouring water and urine around the support pole. He also
slowly digs a hole under the stockade. He and the other prisoners note routines and
work out the details of an escape plan. Day by day, the prisoners grow weaker. They
endure lack of food, but also suffer from malaria, parasites, and bouts of dysentery.
Ten of the seventeen guards go on a longer trip to far away villages seeking food. Only seven
guards are left at the POW camp. Seven prisoners, seven guards, it’s the best
opportunity they’re going to get. But there’s a hitch in the plans. YC
has fallen extremely ill and can’t walk. Gene refuses to leave his friend behind.
The American POWS decide to take over the camp and signal a plane instead of escaping.
4 pm. The guards go to get their dinner from the kitchen hut. When Parsit Thanee
who’s acting as lookout gives the signal Dieter springs into action. He pulls up the loose
section of his hut’s floor and squeezes through, then crawls under the fence. He creeps into
the nearest guard hut and grabs three rifles. By this time, other prisoners have also squeezed
through the hut floor and crawled out from under the fence. Dieter gives two of the Thai prisoners
guns, the three of them run into the jungle. The guards realize that something’s wrong and run
out of the kitchen hut. They fire at Dieter, who shoots back, killing one of them. Another guard
runs at Dieter with a machete and Dieter kills him point blank. Gene’s gotten a machine gun, he
helps Dieter drop a third guard. But a few guards escape into the jungle forcing the POWS to abandon
their plan of taking over the camp. If the guards show up with reinforcements, they’ll be toast.
Dieter and Duane say an emotional hasty goodbye to Gene, who’s decided to stay behind with YC before
plunging into the jungle. They hike until they reach a ridge not far from the stockade. They’re
dizzy and vomiting from the sudden exertion, but they’re free. Exhausted, they make camp.
They wake to rain. The monsoons have finally arrived. Dieter and Duane continue to hike
through the jungle for the next few days. The constant rain makes their travels worse.
There are endless mosquitos and thick sticky mud. The rice they had carefully dried gets
moldy from the rain. They eat it anyway. Their blistered feet grow raw and get infected.
They follow a creek. Whenever possible they walk in the water so they don’t leave footprints.
The sun briefly comes out and Dieter is able to make a quick directional compass. Luckily,
the creek they’re following is meandering the right direction, west towards Thailand.
At night they huddle together for warmth. Reaching a steep mountainous area where the
creek turns into a river, Dieter and Duane decide to build a raft and float down the river.
Their raft works and their plan is going well, that is until they suddenly hear the roar of a
waterfall. They abandon the raft and swim for it, lest they be swept over the falls.
They start to run low on rice and have dizzy spells. They manage to kill a large iguana
and gorge themselves on the stringy raw meat. They spend a single night in an abandoned
village, though the place is dry, they dare not stay longer. They keep hiking mainly through sheer
force of will. A few times they see planes and try to signal them. They criss cross the river a few
times, to avoid steep spots or impenetrable brush. Duane however is getting weaker and weaker.
While he rests in a hidden, makeshift camp, Dieter climbs to the top of a nearby ridge.
When he has a vantage point, he realizes a horrible truth. They’ve been walking in a circle.
Nearby is the river and he can see the abandoned village where they spent the night a few days ago.
Duane and Deiter are demoralized. That night Duane begins to shiver violently. He’s experiencing a
bad malaria attack. While Duane tries to rest, Ditter takes apart some of the ammo from
his rifle and manages to build a fire. He signals a helicopter and it
seems to circle before flying away. Deiter’s elated. Someone will be back to rescue
them shortly. But the helicopter never returns. Sick and starving, Duane and Dieter
cautiously approach a nearby village for help, holding out their hands to show that they
are empty. But a villager brandishing a machete attacks them. He decapitates Duane.
Horrified, Dieter manages to escape and hide in the jungle. The villagers spend a few
hours hunting him before most of them give up. Dieter goes to the abandoned village and sets it
on fire. He doesn’t care if it alerts the Pathet Lao or villagers, he just wants a plane to see.
The pilot of a C-10 does see it and curiously circles, but Dieter realizes they have no
way to know that an American set the blaze. The plane drops some aerial flares and something
attached to a small white parachute. Dieter finds the parachute canopy, but not what was attached
to it. On a hill near the burnt out village, Dieter uses the parachute to make an SOS.
The next day a troop of Pathet Lao track Dieter via his footprints. Dieter follows them unseen at
a safe distance. He’s able to glean a little food from the campsite where they stop for lunch.
Dizzy, Dieter hunkers down in some bushes and sleeps. The next morning Dieter has trouble
walking and fades in and out of consciousness. A black bear begins to follow Dieter,
not attacking, but just waiting… Dieter crosses the river to evade the bear
and sees a snake sunning itself on a rock. Without wondering if it’s poisonous, Dieter
catches the snake. Holding it taut between his two hands he bites into it while it’s still alive.
Dieter’s digesting his meal and falling asleep in the sun when he hears the
sound of a Skyraider flying low. He leaps up and waves some cloth. The plane
circles and the pilot sees Dieter’s SOS sign. It’s July 20th, 1966. Dieter has been missing
nearly 6 months. He’s rescued just about 100 miles (161 km) from where he originally crashed.
Dieter has two types of malaria, intestinal worms, fungus, jaundice and hepatitis. He’s
incredibly malnourished and weighs only 98 pounds (44.4 kg). Eventually, after over 2 months
in the hospital, Deiter makes a full recovery. It takes him much longer to stop having
flashback nightmares about the prison camp. Sadly, out of the seven prisoners only Dieter and
one other are definitively known to have survived. Once in the jungle, Phisit splits from the
Prasits. 32 days of wandering through the jungle later, due to hunger, Phisit faints on a
road. He wakes up in captivity. A Lao villager found him while he was unconscious. Phisit ends
up in Ban Naden Prison, which is later raided by the US on January 7, 1967. In fact, it’s the only
successful rescue of POWs during the Vietnam war. The two Prasits are never heard from
again. Neither are Gene and YC. However, in the spring of 1971, there’s a CIA report with
testimony from villagers claiming that Gene was again captured, and sent to a camp where he was
interrogated by English speaking high level North Vietnamnese Army generals. Gene was last seen in
January 1968, nearly 2 years after the escape. Upper level CIA are skeptical of the
report, but Gene’s brother travels to Laos in 1972 seeking further information.
Unfortunately, his trip isn’t successful. Dieter’s rescue is kept secret until he’s
fully debriefed and it’s understood that he never signed any confessions. He receives the Navy
Cross, one of America’s highest military honors. Once word gets out, Deiter’s a national hero.
He’s surprised by all the attention he receives, he thinks anyone would have
tried that hard to return home. And now that you've reached the end of our
video, why not keep the watch party going? Ever hear of the Jungle King? After accidentally
killing an officer, an American soldier going AWOL in Burma and befriends a local tribe. While hiding
out in the jungle from invading Japanese forces, Australian soldier Robert McLaren was
forced to perform surgery on himself: .

003.B1B2ReadingIELTS.Selling India’s Rainy Season – Selling India’s Rainy Season In most parts of the world, storm clouds would be greeted with a frown.
But in India, it's said that when the monsoon rains come, a billion people smile. Monsoon season, also known as the rainy season, is closely tied to India's economy. The abundant rains bring life to India’s farmland, which provides hundreds of millions of jobs to farm workers and helps feed its vast population. While monsoon season is traditionally a joyful 10 and important time for Indian agriculture, it affects
the tourism industry in a very different way. During this time, the number of travelers to India can drop by half. Understandably, very few tourists want to spend their holiday in the rain. But there has been a government push over the last few years to convince them otherwise: that India's rain is to be celebrated and not shunned. "Watching the rains is one of the best sightseeing options I can imagine," says journalist Somini Sengupta, a Calcutta native. Various states have risen to the challenge. Goa (a popular holiday destination near Mumbai) and Kerala in the south have begun offering "monsoon packages." They say the monsoon brings other benefits besides lower off-season prices. For one, the rain brings with it lush, green landscapes. Goa has beautiful islands, waterfalls, lakes, dams, and wildlife sanctuaries that can be enjoyed during the monsoons, says Elvis Gomes, former director of the state's tourism department. Some of the country’s biggest festivals are also held either at the beginning or end of the monsoon season. For example, Onam festival, held in Kerala in August or September, is a ten-day-long celebration of the rich harvest, where people eat, sing, dance, and watch the famous boat races, in the city of Puri on the eastern coast, the Rath Yatra festival features colorful parades every evening for 21 days, where statues of deities are carried through the streets. India has a long history of monsoon appreciation dating back to the 19th century. Palaces were built to honor and enjoy the rains. The most famous of these "monsoon palaces" is Sajjan Garh Palace in the southern city of Udaipur. It rests on a hill and has viewing areas that offer beautiful views of the Sajjan Garh Wildlife Sanctuary. These palaces served as summer homes for royalty but today offer a taste of classic Indian-style luxury Not to be outdone modern resorts have added special facilities to attract monsoon visitors. Some have built "water parks" with connected pools, water slides, and fountains where people can splash around, as well as open-air discos where people can dance when it pours. Some luxury hotels even have private patios next to their guest rooms so that their guests can shower naturally in the rain. Travel writer Alexander Frater spent one whole monsoon season following the rains up both the east and west coasts of India. In his book Chasing the Monsoon, he describes the unique energy and traditions surrounding the monsoons in different regions and cities. Frater noticed that many people travel to western India during the monsoons seeking physical and spiritual healing. He quotes a local from Mumbai who describes the monsoon as a metaphor for cleansing and rebirth. The wind drops, it gets very dark, there is terrific thunder and lightning… Suddenly, the air is very cool and perfumed with flowers. It is a time of rejoicing. And renewal” Many visitors go to India simply to share in this joyous season. As one Kerala promoter says, You can feel the magic. The washed streets and fresh leaves seem to smile with you." .
