Jungles Are Never Neutral: War-Time In Bahau

An extraordinary story of exile and survival, the diaries of Brother Patricius O’Donovan Fsc

This is a war-time story that sparkles as it reflects the indomitable spirit of a community that refused to be daunted by the hostilities of invaders, ravages of disease, the unrelenting challenges of jungle life, pangs of hunger and the haunting shadows of death itself. The human element in it is difficult to equal.

Brother Patricius O’Donovan’s diaries are exceptional in that while they speak of anger, frustration and discontent, they also focus on life’s saving graces – friendships, laughter, the imagination.

This book illustrates that even in the darkest hours, the human spirit struggles to find space for light.
