The 65-minute War Story began life as a Canadian TV dramatic special. The film is based on the diaries of army physician Ben Wheeler. During WW II, Wheeler spent three grueling years in a Formosan POW camp. Very tense and brutal at times, War Story is overall a paean to the indomitability of the human spirit. It was later offered as a "feature film" on the American A&E cable service.
