This review is from: The Forgotten Highlander: My Incredible Story of Survival During the War in the Far East (Hardcover)
This is a profound story that was difficult to read but also difficult to put down. I read this book cover to cover in a day. Learning the truth about the atrocities of the Japanese during the war was both enlightening and disturbing and must have taken considerable courage for Mr Alistair Urquhart to re-live in the telling of his harrowing story. The behaviour of the British government is equally difficult to comprehend. What makes such a disturbing story immensely readable, however, is the story of triumph over adversity and the awe inspiring power of the human spirit demonstrated by Mr Urquhart in surviving the horrors of war. What a truly incredible inspirational man. Alistair Urquhart's story will stay with me forever. Highly recommend reading this book, it makes you appreciate what you have in life.
