“Baba, this is the friend I told you about…,”
by David Wallace.
Eric Lomax was a young army officer who, during the Second world War, was one of the men forced to build the Burma railway. This book is his autobiography. It also details the meeting he had with his Japanese former torturer, Takashi Nagase, many years later. The crazy thing is, Eric forgave Nagase.
Nothing could make me like this book. I am sorry.
Another holiday read.
I read this in two days while on holiday.
I read this book on the journey to and from Southampton today when I was going to visit Winchester.
