Frank Rowan: A WWII "death march" survivor
For soldiers, VE Day couldn't come soon enough. Flying Officer Frank Rowan survived his 35th parachute landing into enemy territory only to be rounded up as prisoner of war.

Rowan shared his harrowing experiences with Canada's History in the October-November 2010 issue "Shell Shock". You can read his ordeal below.
