Gudao, Lone Islet Review

R.W.Bridge, M.B.E. President of the Association of British Civilian Internees Far East Region.

In a tale quite different from the usual story of internment by Japan during the war, Margaret Blair chronicles her life in pre-war Shanghai and how this idyllic existence was shattered forever by Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor and the harsh realities of life in a Japanese internment camp. The book provides a clear summary of what happened in the lead-up to hostilities and complements this with how a tired world adjusted after the guns were silenced - a comprehensive read for those trying to learn of those turbulent days and a compulsive read for those that were there.
