Maps, black and white photographic plates, xv + 265pp, index, bibliography, notes, very good hardback copy in dustjacket with very lightly faded spine. "A number of those who suffered at the hands of the Japanese during the Second World War and have subsequently written of their experiences are at pains to say that they bear no grudge. George Wright-Nooth is not cast in the mould. He is prepared neither to forgive nor to forget the appalling suffering visited by the Japanese upon their hapless prisoners...he has only now felt able to publish this remarkable first-hand account of what happened in some parts of Hong Kong during those terrible years" - Publisher's Description.
