This is the book, which started me searching for anything that John Gobbell has written.

Exciting, tense, but warm in its own way.

A very good read, closely based on actual events after the occupation of the Philippines by the Japanese.

Superbly written and easy to follow for any action buff. No need to be a military guru to understand the story line as it takes shape. I love this author and all his books!

Overall I liked the book. I'm a student of WWII history and while the story was good, the factual errors were distracting. I don't know if I should fault the author or the editor(s) but such errors are unforgiveable.
