Day 2: Gory tale

If you have a sensitive disposition and a vivid imagination, you may not want to read this one (it’s not graphically written, so let’s call it a rather gentle PG rating):

On February 19, 1945, nine hundred Japanese soldiers retreated across a swamp in Burma. The swamp was sixteen kilometres wide and filled with saltwater crocodiles.

I bet you know where this is going.

Twenty soldiers were captured by the British. Five hundred escaped.

The remaining three hundred and eighty men were never seen again.
