PRISONER OF THE TURNIP HEADS. The Fall of Hong Kong and Imprisonment by the Japanese. By George Wright-Nooth, with Mark Adkin. In what is destined to become a classic of wartime courage and endurance, this is an autobiographical account of one man's experience as a prisoner of the Japanese Army after the fall of Hong Kong on Christmas Day, 1941. George Wright-Nooth and fellow prisoners were to see their world turned upside down after the surrender of the colony to a victorious but often savage Japanese invader. This is the often-shocking story, captured in a secret diary kept at great risk by the author during his imprisonment, as they endured starvation, cruel beatings, and a massacre of prisoners. Softcover. 271 pages. B/w photos.
