    One thought on “So far from home: Manila's Santo Tomás Internment Camp, 1942-1945”

    1. Very moving with extraordinary detail and feeling. A natural companion to other works of the era such as Ballard's In the Empire of the Sun and Agnes Keith's Three Came Home.

    2. I bought and read this book because my great-grandfather, a retired American soldier living in the Philippines, was interned in his 60s at Santo Tomas during World War II, and I was hoping not only to find any bit that I could about him but also to learn what life must have been like for him during the internment. The book is actually very detailed — it uses meeting minutes and logs, as well as personal diaries and journals of select internees, as sources of such detailed information as names [...]

    3. Not a polished book but very informative. Civilian internment camps in the Pacific during WW2 are not well publicized. I read this after reading Scott Walker's book- The Edge of Terror.
