Novel for children.
"It's 1942, and the tiny farming town of Featherston is about to receive hundreds of Japanese soldiers into its prisoner-or-war camp. Ewen, whose dad is a guard there, can't stop wondering about the enemy just down the road. Some say the captives are evil and cruel and should be treated harshly - or shot. But when Ewen and his friends ride out to the camp to peep through the barbed wire, the POWs just seem like ... well, people. Then a new group from a captured warship arrives and the mood in the camp darkens. As tension builds between guards and inmates the boys are told to stay away. But on 25 February 1943, Ewen and his friends are there at the moment the storm breaks - and terrible, unforgettable events unfold before their eyes."--Back cover.
