This was a pretty well done study of the experience of an American POW in the Philippines in WWII. Ever since reading a fiction book on the subject a few years ago, I've wanted to read a historical account, and have begun a few, only to be discouraged by tone and language. It seems bad language is just something to put up with in this subject--this book had plenty, too, but because most of the book was presented as the story of one man, I was able to stick with it better. I was sometimes confused by the inclusion of many Japanese experiences as well, as I had a hard time keeping everyone straight. Still glad I stuck it out and read the book, but can't say it's a favorite book.
