The Brave Japanese,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Brave Japanese (Kindle Edition)
An interesting review of one man's experience as a Japanese POW. For a change, in such personal stories, it is not merely filled with a catalogue of unremitting brutality - though there are plenty of examples of this - but the author reveals an honest respect for some characteristics of his captors. For a change, too, he is prepared to put the experience behind him, without malice, when the war and his brutal captivity are behind him. One is left feeling that there must be a good deal left unsaid in his remarkable story of survival but one is still left in awe of the incredible capacity that some humans have for refusing to be overcome by incredible odds.
