The Moon Seems Upside Down is a story of love and war told through the letters of Arthur Alan Mitchell, who served with the 2/2nd Pioneer Battalion and later suffered as a prisoner of war on the Burma Railroad. The letters provide a unique insight into what the Second World War was like for Australian soldiers, and for the people who waited for them back home.
This is the remarkable story of Australian prisoners of war who survived the atomic bombing of Nagasaki. There were 24 Australian POWs in a camp less than 2 kilometres from the epicentre of the blast, and 2 other Australians were imprisoned in a camp 8 kilometres away. How they came to be there, endured their imprisonment, and survived a nuclear attack, is the inspiring story told in this book.
