Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We've all read about / seen the film about, Japanese Prisoners of War Camps. This book is different. It is a highly personal account by a very young man caught up in the horrors of the prison camp. You feel you know him as you read it. He doesn't bear resentment or over-play the indignity and suffering - quite the opposite. It is well worth reading by individuals, book clubs or schools. This is what real history is about.

This was very well written - unfortunately the lady died a month before this was published. She would have been very proud.
