Summary
PRISONERS OF WAR. In this moving memoir, a young man comes of age in an age of violence, brutality, and war. Recounting his experiences during the Japanese occupation of the Dutch East Indies, this account brings to life the shocking day-to-day conditions in a Japanese labor camp and provides an intimate look at the collapse of Dutch colonial rule. With the surrender of Java in 1942, John's father was taken prisoner. For over three years, the family would not know if he was alive or dead. Soon thereafter, John, his younger brother, and his mother were imprisoned. Throughout all of their travails, John kept a secret diary hidden in his handmade mattress, and his memories now offer a unique perspective on an often overlooked episode of World War II
