The Notes of Japanese Soldier in USSR

Kiuchi Nobuo was a Japanese air corps soldier captured by the Soviet Army at the end of World War II.  Nobuou has drawn a series of postcard-like cartoons recounting his experiences as a P.O.W.   Life in a Siberian prison camp was extremely hard, no surprise, but he did live in more pleasant places and recounts tolerable, bittersweet and even seemingly enjoyable experiences.
