it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction--historical

Probably the best book about WWII prison camps written--and there were/are a myriad of them. This author is worth reading, always was. Many know him only for Shogun. This book struck me as probably intensely autobiographical, tho I never went and researched whether Clavell was actually an inmate of Changi prison camp during WWII. Recommended to readers of historical fiction, those interested in the WWII Pacific theater, and anyone interested in the decline and fall of the British Empire.
