HEALING IN HELL: THE MEMOIRS OF A FAR EASTERN POW MEDIC
by Ken Adams

Ken Adams was sent to the Far East during the Second World War and saw action on the Malay Peninsula before being captured at Singapore. As a trained medic he was initially assigned to work at Changi Hospital, where conditions were bad enough, but this was only the start of the three-year ordeal and many moves and far worse camps in Thailand followed. In this harrowing book Ken describes the terrible conditions endured at the hands of the Japanese and Korean guards and, worst of all, the Kempetai secret police.

This rich social history examines the experience of the greatest and most terrible war in history from the perspective of these ordinary, extraordinary men, who were plucked from their peacetime families and workplaces and sent to fight for King and Country. Touching on issues of class, sex, crime, trauma, and national identitythe book provides an enlightening perspective on how a generation of modern-minded young men responded to the challenges of a brutal conflict.
