Pribbenow's article is detailed and interesting in itself, but the interrogation theory which informs it is too deeply implicit for an amateur like myself to get a lot of useful (in the sense of evaluating policy: I'm not planning on interrogating anyone! I just give them pop quizzes....) information.
It is clear that the physical and most of the mental/emotional torture inflicted had little useful result.
And it's a fascinating "slice of life" of the Vietnam war: anyone teaching the conflict should consider this as a reading for students, I think.
