Geoffrey Pharaoh Adams' account of his time as a Prisoner of War of the Japanese during the Second World War. From the amiable co-operation of the guards at Bukit Timah to the sickening brutality the author endured in Japan, the deepening level of depravity accurately reflects the progress of the in the Pacific. The author states that it was the only atomic bombs at Hiroshima and Nagaski that enabled him to survive.
