Summary
"Dozens of British and Commonwealth officers of the rank of colonel and above [were captured by the Japanese at the fall of Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Burma]. These senior officers, many of whom were decorated war heroes, were separated from the men and formations they once commanded, and shipped around the Japanese Empire in one group, kept alive so that the Japanese could ritually humiliate them at every opportunity. In direct contrast to how the Germans treated captured Allied senior officers, the Japanese inflicted on them the same appalling regime of starvation, beatings and hard labour, no account being taken of their rank or age and inevitably a number died as the result of such abuse. Prominent figures treated in this way included General Percival, (GOC Malaya) and a host of major-generals, brigadiers, colonels and senior colonial officials. Their detailed post-war testimonies greatly aided the Tokyo War Crimes tribunal in exposing the nature of Japanese treatment of Allied POWs"--Jacket
