A marvelous account of a British hero. Probably brought down by what we now know as ptsd
I usually look for books on Asia conflicts and true adventure this was a real find i go to Sabah and Sarawak Borneo quite a lot so i can imigine how difficult a time that Freddy Spencer Chapman must have had just to survive in such a enviroment under the conditions he had to live with and he went on to defiy the Japanese in the jungle for three and a half years.
You live every torturous mile of Freddy's journey through the Malaysian jungle once I started the to listen I could not switch off.
The author also tries to show how the child becames the man coming up with the interesting and plausible idea that being adveturous and rootless in his early childhood shows us why he survived.
