Format: Hardcover
Iannarelli's story tells of the short battle for Guam against overwhelming odds. Captured and taken to Japan, Iannarelli and his fellow prisoners were forced to work as slaves at the Nippon Sietesu steel mills (Nippon Iron and Steel, as NKK was known as before the war).
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.

Format: Paperback
First hand account of a POW in mainland Japan that was intriguing and well worth the read. It is hard to find accounts that actually explain what life was like in a POW camp in Japan, most did not survive. This story is one of patience, persistent and heroic faith in country and each other. Highly recommend especially if you are a student of history.
