Dragons in the Forest
Born in Japan of a French father and White Russian mother, Alex Faure greeted news of war in the Pacific with schoolboy enthusiasm. That is until the hardships of being a ‘gaijin’ and neutral foreigner in Japan during World War II became a stark reality for the Faure family.
Peter Yeldham masterfully tells Alex Faure’s own true story against the backdrop of real events in wartime Japan. Laced with excerpts from Alex’s diary, ‘Dragons in the Forest’ is a riveting tale of life as a foreigner in a strange land at a very dangerous time.
This book brings my youth alive, and what an incredible time it was!
