This has had to be reprinted and is Number 12 of the Once Upon a Wartime series: Bill Rose was taken prisoner in Java in 1942. He worked in 2 camps; Mitsuhima, in the central highlands of Japan and Kanose in the carbide furnaces. He managed to keep a diary of his day to day experiences.
After burying the memories of his experiences for fifty years, the arrival of a Japanese daughter-in-law encouraged him to make a journey of reconciliation. This is his story.
