They helped defeat the three way alliance of Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and militarist Japan that held the world in an iron grip of evil. And it is their voices used as much as is possible here. These people had two things in common. They were Irish citizens serving with the British armed forces. And they were amongst more than six hundred and fifty Irish men and women who became prisoners of the Imperial Japanese Army in 1942. They suffered an incarceration marked by starvation, disease, and the denial of medical treatment. Beatings were routine, torture was commonplace, and illegal execution far from rare.
