| Laughter In Hell
by Stephen Marek. Very factual story of
Lt. E.L Guiry, USN, and T/Sgt. H.C. "Tom" Nixon, USMC. Travails of two
men, one from Guam and one from Corregidor as they pass through
Zentsuji, Tanagawa, Umeda
and Tsuruga. Well illustrated and gives a complete understanding of
their lives as slaves and how they learned to organize and survive.
Under the camp leadership of Zimo Tarnowski, a Navy Aerographer from
the Philippines, they started a "school" to teach fellow prisoners how
to steal food and eventually corrupt the prison staff. Out of print and
hard to find but worth the price.
