Java Nightmare is a riveting autobiographical account of the companionship and endurance forged between women who were tested to the limits of endurance and human frailty.

Extensively used as source material for the BBC series Tenko, this is a frank record of daily life in the concentration camps of a part of Southeast Asia, revealing the horrors and squalors that had to be endured. Java Nightmare is a vividly written historical record from a period of cataclysmic change in the worlds social order. It is also a moving testimony to the power of the human spirit to survive. As a witness of the immediate aftermath of that terrible time, I can only verify the books authenticity.

Vastly interesting, I read it all in one go. I was greatly moved and found it compulsive reading. DIRK BOGARDE
