Book Description

The Award-winning* novelette based on the deadliest crocodile attack ever recorded.

On February 19th, 1945, one thousand Japanese soldiers retreated into the fetid mangrove swamps of Ramree Island hoping to escape their British enemy. However they soon discovered that the sixteen kilometre stretch of marshland that promised to offer safe cover, had delivered them straight into the jaws of hell.

Inspired by true events during WWII, Sunset on Ramree follows young musician-turned-soldier Shigeatsu Nakadai and his best friend, Kodi, as they head ever deeper into danger.

I have a saying when asked how I'm doing. I always say, "I'm another day wiser and another day blessed, " and after reading this historical I truly understand the magnitude of my words. Anyone surviving this is a walking miracle. A truly phenomenal read.

I've heard about this croc attack on Japanes soldieers in Burma,but never was able to get any details.Even though this was fictionalized it was enjoyable.I will look for a more accurate account of this event to garner a little more information.
