Listing Detail Tabs

Colonel Russell, an Australian army volunteer is captured by the Chinese in Malaya with seven colleagues and is put through intensive interrogation by Major Lim, the objective being to break down Russell’s resistance and persuade him to broadcast communist propaganda to the West. He forces Russell to write about his childhood in minute detail and from these memoirs he pieces together a character study of his captive which is brilliant in its observation.
When Russell steadfastly refused to broadcast, Lim forces him to witness the execution of his seven comrades, one by one, every dawn each execution following a pattern taken from Russell’s childhood fears and terrors.
Yet this is not merely another story of East versus West. The two central figures are so subtly defined that after hours of compulsive reading one wonders just whose side one is one.
