Overview

When the Japanese entered World War II, some 20,000 British civilians in Asia were marched off to concentration camps. Over 3,000 of them were children. Now, for the first time, the extraordinary experiences of these innocent victims of war have been collected in one volume. The result is an unforgettable window into a brutally shattered world. The harrowing stories of these children are marked with horror, suffering, and self-sacrifice, yet they also testify to the resilience, adaptability, and irrepressibility of the human spirit.
