King Rat James Clavell

The time is World War II. The place is a brutal prison camp deep in Japanese-occupied territory. Here, within the seething mass of humanity, one man, an American corporal, seeks dominance over both captives and captors alike. His weapons are human courage, unblinking understanding of human weaknesses, and total willingness to exploit every opportunity to enlarge his power and corrupt or destroy anyone who stands in his path.

    By Arsenal_Legend
    I just read the book for a second time, i read it when 16 and now am middle aged - it reminded me of how tough life can be and the sheer will of ordinary men to continue day after day in the harshest of conditions - self policing even though their peers died in their drones right next to them - daily. For anyone who needs to be reminded of what blind determination really is and really isn't.
