Summary
As children growing up in adjoining towns in the Western Australian hills above Perth, Jacky Bellamy is Charlie Parkin's sworn enemy. Their main rivalry is over the attentions of the beautiful, enigmatic Stella Cerini. Life throws them together at apple core fights, social events and a cricket match where Don Bradman appears. Their dislike for each other grows. World War 2 arrives and both find themselves in the same unit. As Prisoners of War in Java they face adversity and privation. They are being transported on the ill fated Tomahoko Maru when it is torpedoed by an American submarine and the prisoners spend many hours in the water. Most of the shipwrecked POWs do not survive. Charlie and Jacky are rescued by a Japanese whaler and are taken to Nagasaki in Japan where they are put to work in the steels mills working under diabolical conditions
