Yes. It was good. Being a WW2 story about Japanese POW camps, it does not paint a pretty picture. 8-) 8-) 8-)

I like to read but rarely say it was so good that I couldn't put it down. It really is worth your time and is a great look at heroism and bravery of American soldiers captured by Japan. Treat yourself to an excellent read.
