Last Post Over the River Kwai

The 2nd East Surreys in the Far East 1938–1945

Cecil Lowry

The 2nd East Surreys were one of the first regiments to engage with the Japanese in Malaya, facing them from December 1941 as part of what has been called the ‘forgotten army’. While many perished in combat or in POW camps and Churchill regarded their surrender as Britain’s worst military disaster, the majority lived and this book is a recollection of their individual experiences, both in action and in captivity.
