What an amazing story! Very disturbing accounts of life in a POW camp. It is a wonder that any one survived that time. Just makes you more thankful for all the World War II vets that lived through the trauma and still were able to live productive lives.

Vickie I hope you find this book as fascinating as I did. I can't imagine ever surviving the things this man (Louie) did in the book. Who knew the Japanese tortured their prisoners this way? Every time I read something like this, It makes me more aware of how little I know!


Linda My dad was a radio operator in a B-25 in the Army Air Corp so this has been very interesting so far. It makes me appreciate what he went through in the war - just the number of casualties alone are amazing.
