4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and Gripping View of the War 24 Nov 2003
This comic book is a not only a treat to read in it's simplicity of drawings but also has a gripping storyline. The main character is easily loved and soon you "feel" with him throughout the book.
I stumbled across it in my brother's bookshelf and immediately wanted to read part 2, so entrapped was I in Gen's life.
It's also great to read about the war from an asian point of view.
