Living History Interview – Far East Prisoners of War – by Hilary Custance Green

I’ve been following Hilary Custance Green as she extensively researched and wrote this book.  I have read other books by her and am especially excited to read this one.My own father was shot down twice in the jungles of Burma and might have known these men had he been captured.  (He even looks like Hilary’s father on the book cover – mustache and all!) My mother had no word from him for months and then he staggered out, starving and was hospitalized for some time after.

The source for this post is from writer Sally Cronin: Sunday Living History Interview – Far East Prisoners of War – Hilary Custance Green

  1. Cinda, thank you so much for this. I have been away from home (giving talks about POWs), so slow to respond. Something that moved me about these men and women was the way they coped with not knowing. Your mother, like mine (and so many others) had to wait and wait, knowing only that something bad was likely to be going on.
