Iannarelli gives a detailed and stirring account of bravery by fellow prisoners as they endured endless days of starvation, savagery, and brutality at the hands of the Japanese guards. Iannarelli had the advantage of speaking Japanese and was able to prevent much of the savagery against fellow inmates by interpreting Japanese commands. Like his 80 fellow POWs from Guam, he learned to steal food and supplies in order to live. Being caught meant a savage beating with baseball bats and mass punishments of the entire camp.
One of the singular best books written about the Hirohata POW camp. Worth acquiring for the serious student of World War II history.
