Description:
The Great Starvation Experiment 'is wide-ranging, weaving progress in the war into the day-to-day suffering of the hungry volunteers. Saint Paul' Pioneer Press' Fascinating . . . Minneapolis' Star Tribune'Near the end of World War II, thirty-six conscientious objectors volunteered to be systematically starved for renowned scientist Ancel Keys s study at the University of Minnesota in the basement of Memorial Stadium. Aimed to benefit relief efforts in war-ravaged Europe and Asia, the study sought the best way to rehabilitate starving citizens. Tucker captures a lost moment in American history a time when stanch idealism and a deep willingness to sacrifice trumped even basic human needs. Tucker provides a fascinating and moving history of the experiment, centering on the lives and experiences of the volunteers and the formidable obstacles they overcame. Tucker tells the story with verve and economy. . . . Keys, his experiment and his 36 starving men form a compelling combination. Publishers Weekly'Todd Tucker is the author of several books, including Notre Dame vs. the Klan: How the Fighting Irish Defeated the Ku Klux Klan' (2004).' He served on the legendary Navy submarine USS Alabama' before moving to Valparaiso, Indiana.'
