The extraordinary stories of the children interned by the Japanese in the Second World War

About the Author

Nicola Tyrer is a freelance journalist who writes for the DAILY MAIL and DAILY TELEGRAPH. Her previous books include SISTERS IN ARMS and THEY FOUGHT IN THE FIELDS, a history of the Land Girls.


Tyrer's triumph is to capture the full breadth of the internment experience for children, from black comedy and adventure to bitter tragedy, and a cross a great geographical spread... It is profoundly satisfying to read that many of [the] children went on to transcend the trauma of the camps and live happy lives, into old age THE SUNDAY TIMES fascinating... At times the narrative is harrowing and violent, but the stories recounted are also filled with the spirit of human resilience and extraordinary capacity to adapt to inhospitable surroundings and treatment. YOUR FAMILY HISTORY This is the heart-rending story of some of the 3,000 children who were interned in World War II Japan. From terrifying tales of brutality to the uplifting episode of a nine-year-old standing up to her captors, this is war from a child's eye view. FAMILY TREE MAGAZINE this excellent history remains a collection of individual stories of suffering and in many - but not all -cases of ultimate triumph. [Tyrer] is also concerned with how the children coped when finally released out of Japanese hands and into civilisation. Theirs is a moving story of cruel events all too easily forgotten CONTEMPORARY REVIEW
