Vietnam when he was shot down. He was held as a prisoner of war in the Hanoi
Hilton and other North Vietnamese POW camps for more than five years. These
days Ellis is the president of Leadership Freedom, a consulting firm he
founded. He also is the author of the new book, Leading With Honor, in which
Ellis tells of his time as a POW and gleans fourteen main lessons in
leadership from that experience.
