About this Item

John Howell, San Francisco, CA. 1946. Hardcover. Book is tight, square, and unmarked but for former owner name in ink on FFFP. Book Condition: VG+; foxing to textblock; bumped edges; age discoloration. No DJ. Red buckram boards and spine with gold lettering on spine and front board. Maps of Camp John Hay and Camp Holmes as endpapers. 291 pp. This is a factual story of daily living in a Philippine Civilian Internment Camp under the Japanese where American and British men, women and children were in their protective custody. The journal was written, month by month, from late 1941 through the three long years of confinement, under the suspicious eyes of the Japs, was smuggled from Baguio to Bilibid Prison in Manila during the last days of 1944, when the author was transferred to that city, and was brought to the United States when the writer was repatriated in March 1945. The civilians were constantly kept in a state of mental torment and never knew what the morrow would bring. Always underfed ¿ a situation which grew progressively worse as sources of food supplies became fewer. Many were stricken with disease and some died because of lowered bodily resistance attributable to malnutrition. The writer¿s experience is typical for he lost seventy-seven pounds during internment and, in common with most of his comrades-in-misery, was a gaunt and feeble specimen when release finally came. A clean and very presentable copy. Bookseller Inventory # 000216
