The Naked Island

by Russell Braddon

A excellent & interesting read about the life of a Australian POW in Malaya during War World 2.
In the book the author talks about how he came to join the army, the battle of Malaya & all the way to the surrender of the Japanese in 1945.

The author also include satire about the incompetency of the British war administration before & during the invasion.
There are some Australian slang used occasionally which might be a bit hard to understand but that does not detach from the story's plot or pace of reading.
