Before Hiroshima: Forgotten Prisoners of War in Japan, Burma and the Far East

We asked Dr Jeynes - Why this book? She explained:

"My father was a prisoner of war (POW) in Japan for three years (see his photograph below) and while many people think of VE day in May, they forget those in the Far East (FEPOWs) were still imprisoned until August 15th after the US bombed Hiroshima. Note orders had already been issued by Japanese High Command for ALL POWs and interns (women and children) to be executed “by whatever means” immediately if the Allies started to attack – this was just 2 days before Hiroshima."

Before Hiroshima: Forgotten Prisoners of War in Japan, Burma and the Far East is not just a history of events, nor the personal story of her father as a FEPOW (although clearly this is also a part of the whole picture), but also includes comments and stories from families in UK, Canada and Australia as these represented the biggest proportion of prisoners taken in the Far East.


VJ Day is 15th August - the date to commemorate the end of the war in the Far East. A FEPOW Medallion was produced to remember the 70th anniversary - 2020 was the 75th anniversary. Army.

Iraqi Kurdistan - New Horizons 

by David Barratt

This is a fascinating study of the real contribution made by civilian volunteers during Operation Safe Haven during the Gulf War. 

We were happy to Edit the book for the author, David Barratt, and to help publish it in 2021. As David was one of the volunteer engineers at the time, he has first-hand knowledge of the crucial role they played alongside the military presence. As he points out, much of the written history of events suggests that it was a "Military success" but ignores the input of civilians who gained the trust of the Iraqi Kurdistan people. 

Iraqi Kurdistan - New Horizons

"Operation Safe Haven was the combined military and civilian response to assist with the disaster relief mission in north Iraq following the gulf War in 1991. 

The tremendous efforts by medical, technical, firefighting, and engineering civilian personnel saved the Kurds from genocide. It gave them protection in a safe haven long enough for them to rebuild their lives as an autonomous nation within Iraq."
