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.

If you are interested in World War II history, this book (as well as the two companion books) are for you. They tell the story of the often overlooked Battle of Hong Kong, which was part of the British Commonwealth at that time. The Japanese began their attack on December 8, 1941 (some say the attack began on December 7, 1941 due to the international date line) The Japanese faced a combined force from the British Commonwealth, mainly consisting of two regiments from Canada, the Royal Rifles of Canada and the Winnipeg Grenadiers. These defenders, out-manned and ill-supplied, fought the Japanese valiantly but it was a forgone conclusion that Hong Kong would fall to the Japanese. The author, Tony Banham, has done a truly awesome job in presenting the story of the Hong Kong defenders (of interest specifically to me were the Royal Rifles of Canada) and their struggles in the Japanese POW camps. I commend him on gathering the details of the men and women who perished in the camps. I personally want to thank Tony Banham for providing me with the information on my grandfather, a member of the Royal Rifles of Canada, who died while a prisoner of war in Japan. The story of the Defense of Hong Kong, as presented by Tony Banham, is available in three books. The first book, "Not the Slightest Chance: The Defense of Hong Kong, 1941", is about the battle for Hong Kong. The second book, "We Shall Suffer There: Hong Kong's Defenders Imprisoned, 1942-45", is about the subsequent imprisonment of the defenders of Hong Kong after they surrendered to the Japanese. The third book, "The Sinking of the Lisbon Maru: Britain's Forgotten Wartime Tragedy", is about a Japanese prison ship heading to Japan, loaded with prisoners of war from the battle of Hong Kong, which is torpedoed and sinks. Good job by the author

Much of my childhood in England was proscribed by my Father's experiences in China prior to and after the Japanese invasion of Hong Kong. Tony Banham's meticulously researched book has opened a small window into this world for me and memorialized the sacrifices made by thousands in defense of the island they loved.

If I may be permitted to paraphrase that old cliché about buses; I had never previously seen any books by Tony Banham and then three came along at once. This is my final review of that trio and mention of those other works is included for very good reasons: Firstly the subject matter is the fall of Honk Kong during WW2 with each book complimenting the others enormously. Secondly, each is a triumph of meticulous research. So much so in fact that I earnestly believe these books will come to be regarded as the definitive works on the subject.

In this work, the author continues his study of the former British Colony during WW2 by embarking on, what some might consider, as an unusual aspect by following the trials and tribulations of those who were captured and imprisoned by the Japanese. Whilst I have no way of knowing whether `every' relevant person involved is named in this work, few, if any, can have been overlooked.

In his first two books (Not the Slightest Chance - The Defence of Hong Kong 1941 and The Sinking of the Lisbon Maru - Britain's Forgotten Wartime Tragedy), Banham recounts the heroic defence of Hong Kong and the sinking of the Japanese freighter on which so many POWs needlessly died when that ship was sunk. In this work we follow the fortunes of those who were captured alive and enter their world of almost total deprivation at the hands of their captors as they endured so much hardship whilst being deliberately starved to the point of death. This is more than just another harrowing tale of man against man at time of war and one which needs to be read in order to be understood.

In spite of my own military background during I experienced many atrocities, what I found most surprising was the almost routine nature of the dying. As an example, some 1,500 had lost their lives during the defence and fall of Hong Kong in 1941. Such was the inhumane treatment meted out by their captors, however, that 1,468 died during 1942 alone. Executions accounted for very few of those deaths with sheer cruelty, a starvation diet and total lack of medical facilities accounting for the majority.

Put together by using some fascinating snippets of information placed together in chronological order, I found the content, whilst absorbing, was at times a little too disjointed as we move from one serious event to a minor incident and so forth. Nevertheless, the details and facts are all there and are supported by a small number of carefully chosen photographs in addition to some interesting documents and diagrams.

Altogether, another excellent job of research.
