The Award-winning novella based on the deadliest crocodile attack ever recorded.
On February 19th, 1945, one thousand Japanese soldiers retreated into the fetid mangrove swamps of Ramree Island hoping to escape their British enemy. However they soon discovered that the sixteen kilometre stretch of marshland that promised to offer safe cover, had delivered them straight into the jaws of hell.
Inspired by true events during WWII, Sunset on Ramree follows young musician-turned-soldier Shigeatsu Nakadai and his best friend, Kodi, as they head ever deeper into danger.

My personal opinion as a Japanese.
I think it's big challenge that the person who is not a Japanese writes it about method of thinking, emotions, and philosophy of imperial Japanese soldiers.
This is a good story about the hidden history of WW2.
However, knowledge of Japan of author is poor.
The most of name of the Japanese imperial soldiers are incorrect.
Often, a story seems halfheartedly by ignoring tiny details.
