I found the story riveting and informative, giving a glimpse into the struggles and challenges of soldiers and nurses behind enemy lines when Japan invaded the Philippines at the beginning of WWII.
While the Japanese and American characters were fairly-well developed, the Filipino characters were barely mentioned. A stray dog gets more mention than the Filipinos, otherwise I would have given this five stars.
