This is an amazing story of one mans experiences as a Japanese prisoner of war that should not be ignored. It is beautifully written and very moving. His experiences included being witness to the devastation of the atom bombs at the end of the war. This is the first time i have felt compelled to praise any book book here but this shines out. That this man could forgive all the pain and misery that he endured from his captives is truly is incredible. You wont regret reading this.

I found the book contained some excellent references to life as a POW under the Japanese. I was not sure however of the author's glowing respect for the Japanese considering the experiences he and his mates went through. I also found the book depicted the Australian soldiers as much more efficient and brave than the English and other forces and found this to be detracting from the overall mood of the book. Otherwise a reasonably interesting account of his exploits.

Fact based novel, told how it was, As each generation passes detailed accounts of WW2 are lost.
The suffering experienced by allied POW'S at the hands of their Japanese captor's is quite vivid
and shows just how much the human body is capable of enduring. An sad account of man's inhumanity
and a reflection of our differing cultures. Holds your attention throughout.
