BOOK REVIEWS

HISTORY OF WAR (UK) - Dec 29, 2016: "The result of the author’s endless energy and determination is a compelling story, with more than a few devastating twists. A brief tale it may be, spanning just more than 180 pages, but this is very far from being a little book." (issue #37) Read full review here.

THE LADY (UK) - (Nov 25, 2016): "A moving tribute -- and a masterful account of PoW experiences in the Pacific." Read full review here.

ASIA TIMES (HK) by Joyce Lau (Oct 22, 2016): "...this is a polished project. The paperback ... is well-written and supplemented with maps and photographs." A navy officer’s journey from the South to prisoner of war
