    The book is about war and pows and is sad and brutal at times.

    Interesting story of a lifetime of survival in a hostile wartime pow camp only to be puzzled by an after wartime life of allowing events to unfold with little attempt to control them.

    Beautifully written, weaving back and forth in time, perhaps, as the author writes in the book, because the truth is too terrible to tell head on, the brutality is too much to absorb , too shocking.

    I liked the knowing and not knowing the characters who lived and died in this untold tale, at least to me, of war.
