Good with a fair amount of pre-amble,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tomorrow You Die: The Astonishing Survival Story of a Second World War Prisoner of the Japanese (Hardcover)
I found myself paging forward through the early part of the book until it reached the actual defence of Singapore as I wasn't really interested in the details of his childhood.
Once it actually reached the subject material it was engrossing enough. The actual title of the book was about being told to dig a grave each day for yourself tomorrow, but this particular torture only lasted two days.
Why the British authorities made the prisoners sign a gagging order is peculiar and the facts deserved to be told. The Japanese should really be paying reparations to all surivivors and relatives every year for what they did.
