Escape from the Japanese - The Amazing Story of a PoW's Journey from Hong Kong to Freedom, Lt. Cmdr Ralph Burton Goodwin.
Compelling story of a rare successful escape from Japanese captivity,
followed by a journey across war-torn China. The author was captured

fascinating escape story is followed by a very valuable insight into
conditions within China.
