Prisoner of the Turnip Heads: The Fall of Hong Kong and the Imprisionment by the Japanese

It took endurance beyond belief. On Christmas Day, 1941, Hong Kong fell to the Japanese Army, and George Wright-Nooth--along with many other British soldiers and personnel stationed there--became their prisoner. This is their shocking story, captured in Wright-Nooth's secret diary, kept at great risk. What unfolds is the horrifying tale of near starvation, cruel beatings, and massacres. The term "turnip heads" comes from the nickname that the Chinese called the Japanese, their long-time enemies.
