Reassessing the Japanese Prisoner of War Experience : The Changi Prisoner of War Camp in Singapore, 1942-45, Hardback Book

Reassessing the Japanese Prisoner of War Experience : The Changi Prisoner of War Camp in Singapore, 1942-45 Hardback

Hardback

Description

Popular perceptions of life in Japanese prisoner of war camps are dominated by images of emaciated figures, engaged in slave labour, and badly treated by their captors.

This book, based on extensive original research, shows that this view is quite wrong in relation to the large camp at Changi, which was the main POW camp in Singapore.

It demonstrates that in Changi the Japanese afforded the captives a high degree of autonomy, that this in turn resulted in a prison camp society that grew and flourished, in contrast to other Japanese POW camps, and that it fostered an independent and combative spirit, and high morale.
