About This Book

A unique view of human experience is provided in this volume. Personal diaries and documents and semi-official reports are collated to provide an account by prisoners themselves of the human experience of civilian interns and prisoners of war in Japanese prison camps in Sarawak during World War II. The prisoners tell of their own tales and suffering and bare survival and of the attitudes and brutality of their captors. A remarkable story also emerges of how a clandestine radio and generator brought, at immense risk, hope to the prisoners. With archival photographs, bibliography and index.
