Among western writings and historical accounts of World War II, very few recount first-hand experiences from the perspective of civilian refugees at the Pacific front. Gwok Choy: A Family Memoir is a rare exception in that it is an autobiography of an American-Chinese boy growing up in China, repatriated as a teenager in the United States, then serving as an enlisted man during the Korean War. Told using blended first-person and third-person narrations, this eye-opening biography is a life lived in two worlds; at its heart is an unforgettable journey--literally a trek--through several provinces in China, parts of California, and a war detour in Korea.
