4.0 out of 5 stars No mercy from the Japanese, 15 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No Mercy from the Japanese: A Survivors Account of the Burma Railway and the Hellships 1942-1945 (Kindle Edition)
I am 81yrs now,but as a child during the war, I had to concentrate on the horrors of being evacuated etc etc.
I have now read John Wyatt's book, which makes me realise what horrors our soldiers,airman, and the navy lads were going through at that same time.
My Father served in the first World War, but although shot, he survived, enjoying a good life after that until he died at 96yrs.
How I regret not persuading him to talk to me about that awful war, but in those days they refused to talk about their awful experiences. The shock of living through a SECOND W.W. having their children taken from them for safety reasons, must have been almost too much.
Thank you John, amongst others, for giving the younger generation a chance to read how lucky they are now in Great Britain. Brandy Thomas Oxshott Surrey.
