Brand New Book
This book tells the moving story of a young man who found himself, along with thousands of his comrades, in the nightmare of Japanese captivity. Unlike so many others (it is said that one Commonwealth POW died for every sleeper laid) Bill lived to tell the tale, and in this book he recounts his dramatic wartime experiences.....
It tells of the hardships and horrors of life in the Japanese POW camps, and goes on to describe how the experiences of those years have affected his life since.
