Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Death Was Our Bedmate: 155 (Lanarkshire Yeomanry) Field Regiment and the Japanese 1941-1945 (Hardcover)
You may be forgiven to think this would be just another account of WW2 Japanese Prisoners Of War. But how wrong you would be. This book is uniquely written giving a detailed account of the journey and plight of a little known regiment, the Lanarkshire Yeomanry. The men had no idea what lay before them as they fought their way down the Malayan Peninsula before their capture in Singapore and the horrors beyond. The authors write their story in such an engaging way to the reader that you are there with the men and take every emotional - laughter and tears - step with them. It is a fitting story to all those who suffered under the hands of the Japanese. My Father L/Sgt Jack (John)Farmer was indeed one of those men. A highly recommended read which once started you will not be able to put down. Well done Agnes and Campbell - the men would be proud!
