This exhausting story of the Japanese army's cruelty to American prisoners of war needs telling. Not the kind of recording you will listen to over and over, but well worth an initial hearing.

I just loved the quality of this reading. Unusual in that there were a female and male reader, but it worked in bringing this story very much alive.
