2.0 out of 5 stars Another side of vietnam, 14 May 2005
The book is very well written. I though the first half of the book was very enlighting, however as a one of the above reviewer wrote, then you get kind of annoyed with the writer and his whining about the military. Having not experienced combat myself I cant say even predict how I would behave myself, but in book form it gets abit boring. Im afraid to say I didnt read the last 40 pages.
For a more Gung-ho experience read Guns-up

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing insight in the mind of a japanese soldier, 3 Sept. 2001
Mr. Hideo Onoda came down from the mountain on the island of Lubang in 1974. For 30 years he had been fighting his own war against nature and the enemy. In the 30 years he had been conducting guerilla warfare against local peasants and Phillipine troops, not knowing the war was over.
The book covers his whole life from a kendo fighting boy, to a dancing teenager in the chinese dancehall and to his secret guerilla warface on Lubang Island in the Phillipines.
The book gives an interesting insight in the mind of a dedicated japanese officer. A man that refuses to believe that the war is over and that the japanese search parties that were sent out in the late 50's, were actually the work of the american intelligence forces. Onoda expirences every imaginary ordeal, from colloctive japanese harakiri, to Bubblegum chewing american soldier, to the death of his 2 soldier friends, Shimada and Kozuka. The later who died in 1973. Only a year before Onoda was found.
All in all an amazing book.
