Review:

"The most detailed and important diary that has survived describing the life of civilian internees in Changi." John Bastin Emeritus Reader Modern History of South-East Asia, University of London "[Readers] will find a meticulous account of the day to day events, some frightening, appalling, inspiring, funny, fatal, all true and honest. It is a picture of the way things were. Here is the work of an observant, honest, brave, lovable human being. Tom Kitching had many friends. He will have many satisfied readers." Fredy Bloom, ex-Changi internee in newsletter of Association of British Civilian Internees Far East Region
