Yes. I learned so much history. The story wound through the history was very captivating and plausible.
Hard to single out any one section.
Some of the characters would be hard to find as a favorite. They were so evil. John Lee is amazing with his accents. I guess Maude would be my favorite. I even backed up to see if he had brought in a female to read her parts.
Stealing the batle plan.
Yes. There is so much detail about his early life, running and of course the war time experiences. I have not encountered such day to day reporting of what was going on in the Pacific experience and in the POW camps. The survival techniques were amazing but its still difficult to imagine how he survived all that happened to him.
All of it.
A story of survival
