I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I felt as though i was sitting in a London living room, listening to Mr Parker telling me his story, warts and all, and at times very funny. Never mind the awful punctuation and spelling, etc. These added a special atmosphere to a remarkable story...all the more remarkable because it was the norm! It describes the war in Burma as experienced by 'squaddies", as well as highlighting the frightening lack of training and preparation of these young men in WW2.

I say that this book by a private is better in some ways than those of officers cos they tell it from their point of view and from their experiences which are different from the officers, very interesting book but again some officers were actually involves at the sharp end.

As he states, the author obviously isn't a 5 star writer but none the less a brave soldier who had a remarkable journey through Burma facing one of the most fanatical army's of the 20th century. Also the fact he is able to remember so many little details at the age of 87 is amazing. I really enjoyed this book and was more than worth the 99p it cost me!!!!!

Not really what I was expecting. Ron clearly went through a lot but seemed to do a lot of "whining" which was quite sad to read. His intro came over as "self indulgent". Not well written but clearly written by someone who had lived through a lot.

This is a must read account of WW2 in India, not by a General but by a simple soldier who brings out the horrors of that campain in an almost matter of fact way.

Not enough detail but a good read . As my father was at imphal with the raf medical unit I tend to look for books written about the seige so that can get a picture of what took place.

As pleasant write up from a signals private in Burma and India, it shows well the regular soldiers life at that time and is well written so it's a pleasure - recommended.

Excellent book so interesting and frightening to read what the soldiers went through in the 2nd world war. Anyone who likes this type of book will enjoy this.
