Paperback, reprint, 100gms, 125 pages. Early in the morning of August 5, 1944, a thousand Japanese POWs launched a desperate charge at the machine-gun posts and barbed wire surrounding their compound at Cowra, NSW. The break-out was doomed to fail with 230 men killed and more than 350 injured in what must be seen as a mass suicide attempt. This book addresses the question - why did it happen - through Teruhiko Asada's compelling first person account. Book is in good condition with minor general wear and tear and moderate page discolouration/spotting, otherwise no other pre-loved markings.
