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.
