There are also many WW2 historians, who have had spent their lives researching the second world war, and the sea battles. However, there are fewer that know the stories firsthand from the battles surrounding the former Dutch East Indies. This book records numerous examples of Hellships, but factually recalls the experience of being on a Hellship firsthand. The fact that this is a story of the Junyo Maru, the largest loss of life on a Hellship and the infamous tragic occurrences, make this story relevant for WW2 historians and naval researchers too.
