ldquo;The Great Starvation Experimentis wide-ranging, weaving progress in the war into the day-to-day suffering of the hungry volunteers.rdquo; -Saint PaulPioneer Press nbsp; ldquo;Fascinating . . .rdquo; -MinneapolisStar Tribune nbsp; Near the end of World War II, thirty-six conscientious objectors volunteered to be systematically starved for renowned scientist Ancel Keysrsquo;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. nbsp; ldquo;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.rdquo; -Publishers Weekly nbsp; 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 Alabamabefore moving to Valparaiso, Indiana.

Todd Tucker received a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Notre Dame and served as an officer with the U.S. Navy's nuclear submarine force.
