Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a one time passenger on the Drottningholm from Kobe to Australia then on to Port. East Africa and home on the Gripsholm, I was sorry not to find more details of the kindnesses of the crews and the extra special attentions they gave to us who had been gone for so long in POW camps.It was as though each person was hand picked to be an encourager, a healer, a saver, a rescuer. This voyage will remain as one of the greatest times of my life. I was 12 years old then. I think of these people often and with great affection. The book is great but more technical- who did what-where- and when. Personalizing the experience would have been great.
