Prisoner of the "Kormoran" - James Taylor

George G. Harrap & Co., 1945, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good - in Poor DJ. DJ a little edgeworn with several small tears, closed and open, with some loss. Mildly bumped at head & tail of spine and corners. Pages gently tanned. A pleasant copy all the same.

From the cover: “The Australian freighter Mareeba and all her crew disappeared without trace in 1941 when bound for Calcutta via Malaya and Colombo. W. A. Jones, the only survivor yet to have reached home, in collaboration with James Taylor, here recounts how the vessel was sunk in the Indian Ocean by the German raider Kormoran which later was destroyed by, and in turn destroyed, H.M.A.S. Sydney. Beside the physical discomforts and suffering of a prisoner's life this narrative reveals much of the mental and emotional consequences on a man of poor food and confinement, and sheds a good deal of light on the Nazi groomed German guards.”
