The remarkable story of the author's experiences in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp.
Laurens van der Post was a prisoner in Java when the atom bombs that ended the war destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Both a moving memoir of his experiences in the camp and a meditation on the morality of the bombs, this is also a compassionate contemplation of the Japanese guards and their western prisoners.
