I've just completed the blog version of my great uncle Frank Samethini's P.O.W. memoir, The Sky Looked Down:

Frank was a sergeant in the Royal Netherlands Indies Army, captured on Java in 1942, sent to be a slave laborer on the Burma Railway and then transported to Japan. Among other events, he recounts the devastating B-29 raid on Toyama on the night of August 1, 1945.

Hope you will all find this an interesting and useful read.:)
