Astonshing and humbling account of heroism, immaculately researchred. You can no longer consider McQueen and Pat Reid as the POWs of WW2. Considering that this was so recent our kids should know what happened, so that they can understand the origins of what is occurring on our continent today.
Read this book and count the number of times you shake your head in disbelief at how so many ordinary men dealt with the extremes of cruelty, bad luck and bloody ill-fortune.
Not only that it is just really, really good reading
