Paperback. An authentic record of Japanese wartime brutality that is as horrifying as 'The Naked Island' and as damning as 'The Knights of Bushido'. This is the true, incredible story of Dr. Philip Bloom and his wife, who were married during the 70days' siege of Singapore and later interned in separate camps as prisoners of war of the Japanese. The book centres mainly around the activities and conditions of the Changi military camp, where the medical men performed miracles of improvised surgery - utilising filing cabinets, bedsteads and other materials to make false limbs for crippled Servicemen. But it contains too, the horrifying story of Philip's wife, who, apart from the suffering shared with 400 other women and 80 children, became a victim of the dreaded Japanese Kempei Tai and was flung into a "cage" with 16 men. In this unbiased and moving account, compiled after intensive investigation, details of this camp were being told for the first time. With Appendix. 192pp. mass market p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/pate. Browned pp. o/w Vg+
