Description

'Have you ever seen a man flayed? It is so rewarding...' Squadron Leader Peter Anderson stares in horror at his captor, Bo Ba Tin - the 'Devil's Helper' - and realises that the sadistic Burmese interrogator working for the Japanese is, in fact, his cousin... Nothing could be stranger than this meeting in war-torn Burma, and Peter Anderson's adventures, from being shot down in his Hurricane, to torture and escape, and thence to guerrilla warfare and a final showdown at Kohima Ridge in April 1944, form the backbone of this splendid fact-based novel. Robin Meakins shows acute insight into the duplicity, mysticism and sheer will to live that typified the lost paradise of twice-occupied Burma. He revels in passages, as he puts it, 'from recent historical matters, often forgotten, where individuals have to find an inner strength to survive'. His graphic accounts of jungle warfare, combined with an innate understanding of the spirituality of his heroine, Susie, sprinkle clusters of light on a dark corner of our history - Kohima - which should never be overlooked.
