by Valentine, Douglas

Condition: Very Good in Very Good dust jacket


Lawrence Hill. Very Good in Very Good dust jacket. 1984. Hardcover. 0882081667 . Ex-library with usual stamps & stickers. Light soiling and minimal edgewar on cover. Pages clean & tight. A very nice copy. In this extraordinary story of World War II, the author's father, who enlisted in the army at age 16, describes the experiences that would affect the course of his life. Douglas Valentine tells of his capture by the Japanese in the fetid jungle of New Guinea, as well as his internment with Australian and British prisoners-of-war in the Hotel Tacloban — a place where no mercy was shown or expected, and from which few came home alive. A celebration of camaraderie and a testament to "the soldier's faith", this is a story of murder, mutiny and an incredible military cover-up; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall .
