Summary:First published in translation from the Japanese in 1952, and long out of print, Colonel Tsuji's account of his escape into Thailand from the Japanese surrender in Bangkok in 1945, and then finding his way into China before returning to Japan in 1948, is a remarkable story, which has its place in the military history of the period. Controversially Tsuji, who according to Louis Allen, was responsible for 'unspeakable atrocities' in Singapore and elsewhere during the Pacific War, is also the author of Singapore: The Japanese Version. Nigel Brailey who is lecturer in International History, University of Bristol, provides an in-depth introduction examining both the Tsuji history and historiography.--Publisher's website.
