Saw the author of this book being interviewed on local tv, so ordered as it sounded a very interesting story, so far have not been disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to put down! 31 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I caught the tail end of an article about this book on the BBC Radio 4 'Sunday' programme a couple of weeks ago. Having started to read the book I found it very difficult to put down until I had finished it. Reading Eric Cordingly's diary and notes of his time as a POW Padre is a humbling, and inspirational experience. Thank you Louise Cordingly for publishing your father's story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Have not read it all 14 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm afraid I did'nt read all of the book because it made me think of my Father as he was a POW in Far East and upset me thinking what he went though .He talked a did of his time there but not much.I'm now going to give it to Brother and see how he gets on with the book

4.0 out of 5 stars Full disclosure required... 3 April 2014
By Civis Americanus Sum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a friend of both Louise Reynolds and her brother John Cordingly and met their father many years ago. That said, I found this a really interesting book. As an atheist, I could nevertheless appreciate the 'get the job done' mentality of Eric and his satisfaction in doing it well. The daily life in the prison on Singapore was new to me, though most of us who were born in the 40's or 50's are aware of the dreadful conditions on the railway.
This is a fascinating slice of history from the voice of the man living it. I recommend it and indeed have already done so to a number of people.
It's also a beautifully produced book.
