4,000 Bowls of Rice - A Prisoner of War Comes Home

By: Linda Goetz Holmes (588/35865)
Publisher: Brick Tower Press ISBN: 9781883283513

"A prize is waiting somewhere out there, which Linda Holmes richly deserves for revisiting some appalling realities in a positive way fifty ears after the fact."
Nancy Steffens Seaman, a member of Smithsonian magazines Board of Editors

"A tribute to courage and determination of the men who endured it... I ate the book up, and was disappointed to come to the end so fast, this hasn't happened to me in a long time."
Otto Schwarz, Burma Railway survivor and founder, USS Houston Survivors' Association

"Linda Goetz Homes has focused on a most interesting, and somewhat neglected, period of the Allied POW experience-the hiatus between the end of the war and the return home...A useful addition to the growing body of literature on the Allied POW experience in Asia."
Tim Bowden, Australian author and producer of ward-wining documentaries on WWII POWs.
