KIRKUS REVIEW

A picture -- not for those who would escape the sordid realities of war in the Far Eastern theatre, written by the assistant professor of English at the Chinese University of Lingnan. The siege of Hongkong, the Japanese occupation, seven humiliating months in Stanley Prison Camp, a picture of people breaking under strain and danger. The peril of punishment -- the untrustworthiness of fellow prisoners -- the loyalty and endurance, but the whole picture was not a pretty one. All the nauseous details are here; this is no candidate for the department of understatement.
