At His Imperial Japanese Majesty's Pleasure - Evelyn Honeywill

The Book Guild, 1986, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Good Dustwrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dustwrapper, tanned at the spine and damp-stained at the top edge of the reverse visible externally at the head of the spine and top edge of the lower panel. Text complete, clean and tight.

From the cover: “This book provides a fresh perspective into the harsh conditions which prevailed in Japanese POW and Civilian Internment Camps during the Second World War. Stories of endurance from the infamous Burma railway to the jungle infested camps near Singapore have been symbolised by the Japanese word ‘Tenko’. This name for roll-call was to assume a terrible significance for the thousands of Europeans who were trapped in the Far East when the armies of His Imperial Majesty entered the war and flooded across South East Asia.”
