Book Description

30 May 2000
Arthur Thitherington has led the fight for justice for the treatment the POWs received at the hands of the Japanese. For more than 50 years he has battled to gain a meaningful apology from the Japanese Government and for compensation for what he and his comrades suffered. In "Kinkaseki: One Day at a Time," he details exactly what happened to him, and so many others, during the brutal years he spent as a prisoner in a Japanese slave labor camp. "The scars on my body have healed, but there remain scars that I am unable to show. Twenty years old when the Japanese took me prisoner, I spent my twenty-first birthday working in the copper mine at Kinkaseki. Almost four years of irrecoverable youth were left in the depths of that mine. I do not forget. I do not forgive." Arthur Thitherington

5.0 out of 5 stars A tribute to my granda 17 Sep 2011
This is a very moving and fantastic account of what life was like for the prisoners of war in the camp at Kinkaseki.My granda John Paxton Douglas Couper was in the camp till the end in 1945,he was one of the lucky one who made it.He lived to the ripe old age of 95 and sadly passed away this year.I think everyone should read a book like this as we should never forget what these veterans did for us and i am truly greatful.

This book is a harrowing account of life in a Japanese POW camp in Taiwan. There are other such boks around about the same topic, but if you are looking for a true read on the subject, this is the ONE book for you. Excellent reading but harrowing at times.
