Summary
The time is World War II. The place is a brutal prison camp deep in Japanese-occupied territory. Here, within the seething mass of humanity, one man, an American corporal, seeks dominance over both captives and captors alike. His weapons are human courage, unblinking understanding of human weaknesses, and total willingness to exploit every opportunity to enlarge his power and corrupt or destroy anyone who stands in his path.From the Paperback edition

Summary
Set against the seething backdrop of a World War II prison camp in Japanese-occupied territory, King Rat is an epic novel of savagery and survival--and of one man's all-consuming struggle for dominance over captives and captors alike. Vivid new passages bring Clavell's now-classic story out of the confines of a brutal prison camp and into the outside world--into the lives of the women deprived of their men, living on memories, hopes, and regret--women whose extraordinary courage transcends the madness that surrounds them
