One would think an account of jungle existence for 30 years would get to be tiresome, but I found this book consistently interesting. The author tells of his time from his birth on Mar 19, 1922, his entry into the Japanese Army after the war began, his being sent to Lubang Island in the Phillipines, and his carrying on as Japanese officer till 1974 when he finally came to believe the war was over. It is an amazing story, and held my attention throughout, even though one is dismayed by his refusal to believe what he learned in messages and radio broadcasts. He makes Robinson Crusoe seem like a piker. I came to admire some aspects of his character. Apparently he is till alive. This book was published in1974.

This book is a report about Hiroo Onoda's life in the jungle of an island in the Philippines, walking in at 23 and coming out at 52, unaware and not believing that WWII ended. You will live the process of thoughts that brought him and his comrades to continue fighting. Understand that Japan is a country where internal wars lasted for decades, that the life of a samurai was to devote himself to the orders imposed, and that death for honor is a goal to achieve with pride. Onoda has been told by his superior to never get caught, never surrender, survive even eating banana peels and roots for 10 years if it was the case, and he was never to take his life on his own. And so he did.
