Cyril Wild: The Tall Man Who Never Slept
This is the extraordinary story of a unique member of the British forces at the fall of Singapore: he was both fluent in English and Japanese. He therefore not only served as interpreter for the surrender negotiations, but also proved to be an invaluable intermediary between the British in captivity and their Japanese captors and again interpreted between both sides when Singapore was retaken by the Allies. The author was a prisoner with Wild and wrote this biography with the assistance of Wild's family and contemporaries.
