1.0 out of 5 stars the forgotten army, 27 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
a remarkable story about " The Forgotten Army " as it was called Andy Coogan gives a remarkable account of his life as a Japanese prisoner of war ". Man's inhumanity to Man " revealed in the beastial treatment of the troops and civilians by the Japanese. Throughout it all Andy conveys the comradeship and bravery of the soldiers ,The Gurkhas and civilians caught up in this conflict . We learn of the mistake by the powers that be such as Churchill in assuming that any attack on Singapore would be by sea ,how wrong they were and the disastrous consequences that followed cost thousands of lives
I am glad that I read Andy's book as I lived through that time and can remember many of the boys that I went to school with who were conscripted into the army did not return from the theatre of war that he described
