Opis produktu:

Ken Adams, as a trained medic, was sent out to the Far East and immediately saw action on the Malay Peninsula. Captured at Singapore he initially worked at Changi Hospital. Many moves and much worse capos in Thailand were to follow. He describes his life, work and the terrible conditions endured at the hands of the Japanese and Korea guards and worst of all, the Kempetai secret police.

There have been many books detailing the terrible plight of the Far East Prisoner of War but very few of these have told the story of the remarkable work of the medical personnel whilst in captivity. This is an excellent book and recommended to all military medics as an example of how one of their forefathers, despite his own suffering performed in the highest traditions of the RAMC during very difficult times.

An absolutely riveting book, I picked it up from Waterstones before a flight to the Middle East and could not put it down. It is exceptionally well written and very easy reading. I passed it onto a friend on Tuesday and it's already gone through three pairs of hands in just under a week! Everyone has loved it so far and felt compelled to finish it at the expense of work commitments, children and all life's other distractions!
