Violet's Flight

Faced with the fervency of Japanese expansionism, the Burmese people were faced
with tough questions with tougher answers. "Violet's Flight" tells the story of Violet, a
young Burmese girl unsure of what to do in the face of these invaders. Living under this
oppression, David Beasley tells a unique story with plenty of thought and history.
"Violet's Flight" is not a read to be missed, highly recommended.

Small Press Bookwatch: November 2010

I have now finished Violet's Flight, which I found both interesting and informative. It provides much insight into the structure of Burma with all the tribes and their influence on Burma's life in general. It is evident that the present structure has its foundation in the happenings of WWII. —Per Akermalm, engineer.
