Today little evidence remains of the prisoners of war who once so desperately clung to life at the 8 Mile Camp at Sandakan in North Borneo. To Sandakan is Charlie Johnstone's story, most Of it told in the words of his own journal. It is not about great feats of arms or great deeds of heroism, but ordinary people caught up in a nightmare and about their extraordinary fortitude. Johnstone was not only one of the few to survive Japanese captivity, but was also one of the few to take the great risk of keeping a record of his ordeal. To Sandakan is a moving account of extraordinary endurance.
