Prisoners held by the Japanese during the Second World War suffered a terrible ordeal - most of those who survived were left mentally or physically scarred for life. Told through the journals and memories of Royal Artillery officer Ronald Williams, as well as diaries, cartoons, poems and even a newspaper produced by his fellow prisoners in Java, this book bears witness to the unspeakable sufferings as well as the humour and spirit that kept hope alive.
