    1. Not leaving a review as I read this many years ago but it is an excellent and moving play about soldiers in the Malay Jungle in World War II. Very poigniant, very moving, prepare to cry.


    2. Not my kind of genre that i like, but i can see why others who appreciate this type of literature like it.


    3. A highly entertaining and insightful play about a group of English soldiers trapped in the Malayan jungle in WWII. Wonderful characters and dialogue with some interesting points about life and war :)
