The authors own story of his brutal treatment as a P.O.W. at the hands of the Imperial Japanese Army.

Jack Jennings joined the Army in 1939 and apart from training had a fairly uneventful war training etc until Late 1941.
Then he & his unit were sent on a long journey round to Singapore lasting 4 months.
Fairly soon after arrival he was involved in the debacle of the Fall of Singapore and was captured by the Japanese Army.
He then spent 3 & 1/2 years as a P.O.W. during which time he was used as slave labour building the Thai-Burma railway.
Many of his friends and fellow soldiers died of malnutriton and neglect.
Eventually liberated and eventually repatriated to happier times back in the Black Country of the U.K.

The tale unfolds in an unabashed, matter of fact manner. I could almost imagine myself sitting opposite this old soldier listening to his story over a beer or two in a quiet pub.
It has been well researched to help refresh his memory of over 50 years ago.
It is well written with no typo or gramatical errors and flows nicely.
He has peppered the text with copies of documents & photos. ( Not Jacks fault but the Kindle does not enlarge copies of the documents so I found myself squinting through a magnifying glass at them).

My only criticism is the book is sometimes a bit too matter of fact and perhaps Jack could have injected some more of the emotions and feeling into what must have been a very hard time for him and his fellow prisoners.

Jack i salute you & your fellow soldiers. You are a tough bunch.

I felt that the writer could have given more in depth information about the conditions,but of course I have never had to suffer anything similar,maybe it was to traumatic to put it writing

HASH(0x96f7caa4) out of 5 stars Straightforward memoir of horrible time 15 Dec. 2012
By Patricia Austin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a very factual and unembellished recounting of the author's 3 1/2 years as a Japanese prisoner of war in Thailand and vicinity during World War II, in part working on the construction of the infamous Burma railroad. It contains a wealth of documentation and should prove valuable to people interested in the era.
