Before you scroll down, note that I read the book (on loan from the Sarasota County Library). It is a remarkable tale of courage, awful suffering, and the loyalty of a dog (Judy) who began her life as a mascot on a British Gunboat on the Yangtze River, survived the invasion and destruction of Singapore, trekked with her human pals through the Sumatran Jungle; lived with them in a hellish Japanese Camp, and found a friend in an R.A.F. prisoner - one Frank Williams.
The book I borrowed is now back at he Fruitville (Sarasota) Library. Do read it, either by borrowing it from your local Library, or purchasing it.
It will move your heart to tears regarding "man's inhumanity to man".
It will love your heart to respect and admiration for Judy, a wise, intelligent, brave and faithful English Pointer.
If you love dogs and hate war this is the book for you.
