An Autobiography of Survival: Memoirs of Life in a Japanese Prison Camp.
Sewell, Richard.

(Victoria, British Columbia): [Privately published], 1992. 8.5" x 5.5". 153pp. Illustrated paperback. Mild general use, but overall a nice VG+ copy. This harrowing first person account by a British soldier tells the story of the botched defense of the Malayan Peninsula by the British in World War Two, three years as a POW in Singapore and Japan, and how his war experiences affected the author's post war life. Several publishers reportedly declined to publish the book because "it might possibly offend the Japanese." Paperback (Item ID: 7536)
