translated from Japanese by Dorothy Britton
An interesting true story-- an autobiography really. Written by the little girl (all grown up, obviously) in the picture from the surrender of Okinawa.
She wandered around the battlefield alone for a month or more! It's amazing she survived at all, really.
I had a hard time with the writing... it started out slow. Not sure if that's really the writing or the translation, but either way.
The thing is, even though I had a harder time with the writing, I'd still recommend the book. Her story is so fascinating, and it's a side of the war that you don't find as much about, really.
Anyway, it's a pretty quick read, and even has pictures. :) And like I said, her story is fascinating.
Anyone else read this one?
