We Shall Suffer There is the first work that documents the experiences of Hong Kong’s prisoners of war and civilian internees from their capture by the Japanese in December 1941 to liberation, rescue, and repatriation. While the prisoner-of-war main camps in Hong Kong itself have been mentioned in many other works, there has so far been no definitive chronology of their operation. Where the camps in Japan (to which many of the Hong Kong POWs were sent in six main drafts) have been mentioned, coverage has been superficial and limited in scope, and many camps have been entirely overlooked. This book includes them all, and the movements between them, using only primary sources and only—as far as possible—the words of those involved.
