Survival against all odds, 11 Mar. 2011
This book is a must have historical record of the treatment and lives of Japanese POW's in World War 2.
The original drawings by the author and artist, Jack Chalker, which illustrate the book, were hidden in pieces of bamboo from the guards in the camp and miraculously survived the war.
Jack Chalker has managed to find snippets of great humour throughout the book as he retells the harrowing story of his experiences.
