Produktbeschreibung
When Singapore fell so ignominiously to the Japanese in February 1942, many tens of thousands of men, women and children were left to their own devices. It was truly 'every man for himself. Since to stay in Singapore meant certain captivity and every probability of barbarity at the hands of the Japanese, many tried to escape. This book tells of some of the remarkable and shocking experiences that lay in store for those who chose this option. The only way out was by sea and every sort of craft was pressed into service. Ahead lay terrible dangers; storm, shipwreck, piracy, capture by a merciless enemy, starvation and death through lack of water, to name but some. This is a shocking and inspiring book that encompasses great courage, extraordinary endurance, appalling atrocities and even cannibalism. The author was one of those who made it to safety.
