Excellent portrayal of a soldier's survival of one of the most burtal atrocities of WW II.
As WW II begins to fade into history we must never forget the courage exhibited by men like Ben Steele.
Book is very well researched and written. I would recommend to anyone interested in WW II history.
Could not put down. Having read many books on early WW 11 this was still a outstanding text. The insight into what our men suffered at the hands of the Japs is to this day a hidden secret. To me the men who outlasted the pain endured by them have risen to new heights. We must never forget what took place in January, February,etc of 1942. The book took on new meaning as it gave insight into the men who lived to tell the untold history of just how bad they were treated.
