I've just finished listening to the book and for the first time ever I felt the need to write a comment. On the technical side: this is a very well-written and extremely well-performed book and I highly recommend it to anyone who's grown up listening to the stories of South Pacific WWII survivors. On the personal side: It gave me a greater appreciation and understanding of what my grandfather went through during and especially after the war. Many of the embedded stories struck close to home and the magnificent way in which Humphrey Bower performed the telling...well...oh wow. I have to admit that it's been a long time since any book has moved me so deeply.
