5.0 out of 5 stars A must read!, 20 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Surviving The Sword: Prisoners of the Japanese 1942-45 (Paperback)
For anyone interested in Japanese POW camps, the treatment of prisoners, the lives of the prisoners whilst in captivity as expressed in their personal diaries, written and hidden from their captors, then this is the book for you. Their existence in the camps, the work on the railways, the horror of the hellships, the death marches and horrific brutality they experienced is covered in this book. How they survived is a testimont to the human spirit and how much the human body can endure. It was amazing to read about their resourcefullness in equip their camp hospitals from virtually nothing and to create medicines, drips, etc from what they could find in the camp and from the surrounding jungles. I think this book covers every aspect of their time as a FEPOW and also their struggle to return to the normality of everyday living for those lucky enough to survive. If you think you are having a bad day just read this book!
