255 crisp pp, under 500g for posting, photo section amidships. This is a first-hand account of life as a Japanese prisoner during the Second World War. It reveals how R. Keith Mitchell was taken to Japan as part of an overseas force and set to work levelling agricultural land for an airfield, before being moved to work at the furnaces of a foundry, and then to a coal mine. This remarkable account, based on diaries hidden from the Japanese, portrays day-to-day life in astonishing detail and is a truly compelling story.
