public in 2012 after fifteen years of the research about thousands of Americans
secretly abandoned in Russia after World War Two, immediately led to
Congressional and Senate hearings in Washington. Senator McCaskill’s hearings
confirmed serious DOD/Pentagon misconduct, negligence and even criminal

organization was created in 2017. This organization has also failed to meet its
As the Soviet Union
collapsed in the late 1980’s, the author, then a senior intelligence officer in
Washington, became involved in a Top Secret Soviet initiative to provide the
Pentagon with KGB dossiers for tens of thousands of these lost Americans who had
perished in the USSR a half-century earlier. This initiative was clandestinely
shut down behind closed doors in Washington and then Moscow: and at a time when
hundreds of these “long-lost Americans” were still alive at various remote locations
across the former Soviet Union.
latest DOD organization charged to correct the failures of three earlier dysfunctional
ones is once again a failure. Of tens of thousands still missing after a half
century, DOD’s current well-paid embedded bureaucracy accounts for less than
two hundred cases a year, and at a cost exceeding millions each, and…. over
half these recoveries are sailors disinterred from the USS Oklahoma, Utah sunk
at Pearl Harbor in 1941.
REVIEWS OF AMERICA'S ABANDONED SONS
“This is a superbly written and extensively documented expose.
The author painstakingly researched what happened through little known
declassified documents, memos, and letters. I can only imagine the agony that
the families of such POW’s must feel toward their government for not only
abandoning its POW’ s, but deceiving the families that their loved ones died
when government knew they had not.” K.H.Larson.

“Robert Miller, a retired Air Force Intelligence Colonel and
Defense Intelligence Agency analyst, deftly chronicles how the military
industrial complex and American politicans left tens of thousands behind.” J. Hayes.
“A heartbreaking true story of 25,000 of our abandoned
captured servicemen. This book is a thoroughly documented story of our government
and its politicians who abandoned our service personnel beginning in WWI, then WWII,
Korea and Vietnam. J.L.
“A government “Black-eye” betrayal of the 20th
Century U.S. citizen solider. Outstanding and highly disturbing academic
compendium of investigative reporting! This is the authoritative continuous
story of the heart breaking government cover-up by the USA.” Hawkeye.
“This is a must read. My brother is one of those Korean War
Marines that was stubbornly listed as KIA, but we now have declassified proof
that our government always knew he was a POW. Robert Miller has written the
bible on how disgraceful American conduct has been to its soldiers held in
secret camps around the world, and for that he is to be commended. But if you
read between the lines I think you will find that this task he has taken on is
driven by both outrage and love.” R.F.
“Bob Miller exposes key documents that have slipped through
the ‘Classified’ barriers and he shares details that clearly defy the cover ups
and misinformation spread by our government. You will be shocked by the numbers
and impressed with his methodology. He documents sources and chronologically
leads you through each event. What happened to our servicemen, the real truth
is in still classified documents on the sixths floor of our own National
“America’s POW/MIA problem is scandalous. Miller’s 2012 book
clearly reveals a long time scandal never seriously addressed buy DPMO and JPAC
or their superiors in Congress.” Beauty.
“A scandalous expose, based on an incredible volume of
recent declassified documents concerning some 25,000 captured American servicemen
in German POW camps overrun by the Russian army in early 1945. Stalin shipped
them into his GULAG and denied any knowledge of them. Washington accepted his
word and declared them killed in action in Europe and their bodies never
recovered! Miller’s research exposes
crimes for which punishment has been avoided in the United States and Russia.”
“America has long believed in the motto, ‘Duty, Honor, and
Country.’ As Miller points out in this outstanding book, America seems to have
left the ‘Honor’ part out a long time ago. This book is a tragic reminder of
what can happen when the American people elect ideologues to high political
office and fail to demand that the media hold them accountable for outrageous
things such as those documented in this book.” C.E.C.
“Five Stars.Thank You.” Debby
