2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Gregory R. Baines on December 11, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a really valuable source for anyone interested in Shanghai history. It provides some interesting details on life in Shanghai before invasion, and is a good text to read to understand a little of the huamn side of the Japanese occupation for expats.

Its a little stiff and "British", owing to the class the author belongs ot, and the times it was written in. It's also not a gripping read (after all, its a journal) unless you are really fascinated with the subject matter. This is why i gave it three stars. Still worth picking up.

Doing genealogy, I discovered a distant relative who was in Shanghai at the beginning of WWII and was in one of these camps--made family history come alive.

The book was interesting. It started before the war, which most don't. It also went into detail of rationing and life during Japanese occupation. Also interesting was the author's insight of the war. She was at the same camp as the author of Empire of the Sun. She had a completely different view.
