She , along with other medical personnel and some wounded placed on trucks and sent toward Bataan, a difficult journey.
On the way, they run into, literally into, a IJA bicycle troop, scattering some, hitting others. One of the injured Japanese soldiers lands in a truck, badly injured. The Americans are all for dumping him back in the road, Nurse Louise insists on his being treated as any other injured person.
So,off the group goes into the jungle, pursued by the enemy.
The rest of the book is about the struggle of the Americans, all wounded and all suffering from tropical diseases, to survive.
The focus of the book is Nurse Louise Hamilton and her involvement in the life of the wounded Japanese soldier. He , of course, speaks English because he spent his youth in Hawaii, where his father worked. Drafted in theIJA , he was appalled by the Army's behavior in China. An understanding grew between the Nurse and the soldier that forms the center of the book.
The book is pretty well written and the two primary characters nicely drawn. The historical facts seem accurate as do the backgrounds of the Philippine jungle terrain. The business about one GI and his pet mongrel was tiring, but the mutt does have an important part to play. True, but anything can happen in wartime.
The book entertains as an easy and enjoyable read, not challenging or totally involving , but comfortable.
Recommended for a quiet summer day on the beach. No sexbur expect wartime violence, though not graphic.
Enjoyed the read, immensely.
