Some of the above books are compilations of POW stories shaped into cohesive narratives by professional writers; others are moving accounts of personal experiences. All focus on either women's stories or men's stories. Bowing to the Emperor differs from these books by weaving together the two stories-Klara's experience as an internee in two camps in Java and Wim's experience as a POW in several camps in Java, on the hell ship, and in a camp in Japan. It thereby provides a more comprehensive picture of what atrocities tens of thousands of civilian women and children endured as well as what military men endured as prisoners of the Japanese. It shines a light on these largely forgotten victims of World War II and also fits the personal story of the Andrau family into the larger story of the war.
