5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read on Lanarkshire Yeomanry in WWII, 18 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Death Was Our Bedmate: 155 (Lanarkshire Yeomanry) Field Regiment and the Japanese 1941-1945 (Hardcover)
This is a brilliant book about the Lanarkshire Yeomanry in WWII. My father was one of the regiment who survived the Kinkaseki Copper Mines, and as with many, he did not talk about his experiences. Having read a few other books, I felt this one gave a background on events, splitting the book into the build-up and then a chapter on each of the divisions, so you got a full picture of the whole regiment. It is well written without being sensationalist and gives frequent reminiscences from survivors. It is hard reading the final chapters, especially how the men were treated on the way back and their arrival on these shores. There is a full list at the end of all the men and their camps. I spent some time chatting to Campbell and Agnes at the Lanarkshire Family History Society event in August - that was excellent getting further information on the Yeomanry projects. Well worth reading for anyone with an interest in the Far East during WWII and especially if you have a relative who served with the Yeomanry.
