"Tony Banham's sequel to Not the Slightest Chance does not disappoint. The general reader is given an arrestingly poignant study full of detailed information about Hong Kong's wartime POWs, while scholars are shown how the modern researcher can profitably use information technology when managing information concerning the lives of several thousand individuals. This is a definitive work which will stand the test of time." – Peter Cunich, The University of Hong Kong; director of the HKU Centenary History Project
