review > Many POWs kept diaries of their experiences and all of these are of unique historical value, but Betty Jeffrey's work sets itself a rung above most of the others because of its author's unique knack of expressing herself and her surroundings with pithy irony. You feel guilty for laughing with her at her sardonic descriptions of the terrible humiliations and mindless cruelties of the POW camps, and you weep for her when her energy and hope begins to fail along with her health, but she picks you up again with a wry laugh at her dreadful plight. A very worthy title to add to your library 204pp in great order & some bw photos.
