18-year-old Donald Mansell, his brother and parents were sailing to Africa as missionaries when America plunged into World War II. Fleeing for safety to the Philippines, they instead found themselves prisoners of the Japanese army, spending the next three years in a concentration camp. Donald’s world revolved between hunger, weevils, lack of privacy, and numbing routine. He witnessed torture and brutality, fought off despair, and escaped death several times. Under the Shadow of the Rising Sun is an honest, gripping, sometimes whimsical account of daily life as a prisoner of war. Through the eyes of a survivor, we discover the role of trials in developing faith, and we see the intervention of a merciful Providence in an unforgettable true-life adventure.
