his is a well-written book, an interesting view into the war experiences of a WWII survivor of Japanese prison camps. But- the torture scenes of the various soldiers and even a duck, while under Japanese custody were so intense and disturbing, that it was extremely difficult to finish the book. I finally had to skip quite a few pages of unbridled sadism by various Japanese guards. The story is very interesting, but this is certainly not a read for the young. In the end, I enjoyed the beginning of the book and the ending, but could not stomach the torture and deprivation sections which encompass a large part of the book.
