Reviews

"Daws has done for the POW saga what "Schindler's List" and "The Diary of Anne Frank "did for the Holocaust."-- "The Asian Wall Street Journal""A rigorously authentical masterwork...Daws gives his chronicle a thoughtfully considered historical and psychological context . . . The ultimate effect is strangely, unexpectedly uplifting."-- Cleveland "Plain Dealer""Vividly brings to light the random killing of prisoners during the infamous Bataan Death March and the use of POW slave labor in the construction of the Burma-Siam railroad."-- "The New York Times Book Review""It is a disgrace, really, that because of political priorities this story has never been systematically recorded or documented, and hence has never been fully told to the public."-- "The Wall Street Journal""Superb. A work of consummate historical scholarship. Devastating, heartbreaking."-- "BBC Radio World Service""A powerful, disturbing, and necessary book."-- "Parameters, "U.S. Army War College quarterly"My story is told in this book. Every word is true."-- Houston Tom Wright, POW"All of us recognize how well you have captured the truth. Thanks for telling the world."-- Guy Kelnhofer, POW
