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.

Industry Reviews

"Deserves to be placed among the short list of distinguished books to be written out of the experience of captivity in the last war. It is a classic." - Stuart Hood
