And the Dawn Came Up Like Thunder


Leo Rawlings

While many words have been written of prisoners' experiences under the Japanese in World War II Malaya, there have been very few contemporary visual records of those experiences. This is hardly surprising since the captors had threatened execution of anyone found in possession of cameras, papers and any other means of recording what was happening inside the camps. However Rawlings' graphic skills came to the notice of the British command shortly after the fall of Singapore. He was then commissioned to attempt to keep a pictorial record of what happened. Amazingly the results of his efforts survived. They are reproduced in this book together with his account of his time as a POW. 187pages with over a hundred black and white plates This edition also includes an account of the author's visit to Japan in 1980 when his book was published in Japanese by a former camp guard.
