Book Description Allen & Unwin, 1989. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Dust jacket complete. Black cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership marks. Plates. 147 pages clean and tight. This is the story of one signalman and his section from the time of the surrender of the British forces on Singapore Island in February 1942 to the British reoccupation in August 1945. In this personal memoir of survival at Changi, Keith Wilson tells of the events in the daiiy lives of prisoners, the rumours which influenced morale and conduct and how the prisoners interacted with each other and the Japanese. He relates many stories about the Japanese soldiers and guards, their attitudes to life and to the war. and shows that many of them were as much victims of their own military system as their captives, rather than sadistic torturers who relished inflicting both mental and physical pain on their prisoners. YOU'LL NEVER GET OFF THE ISLAND shows the human and occasionally humorous side of life at Changi, and the dignity and courage with which the Australian soldiers reacted to those extreme conditions. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 140017
