Summary
AU Author. This is the true account of one of the most amazing POW escapes in WWII. Weakened by hunger, thirst and ill-treatment, author Charles McCormac, then a World War Two prisoner-of-war in Japanese occupied Singapore, knew that if he did not escape he would die. With 16 other Australian and British prisoners he broke out of Pasir Panjang camp and began an epic two thousand mile escape from the island of Singapore, through the jungles of Indonesia to Australia. ᙯu'll Die in Singapore' is Charles McCormac's compelling true account of one of the most horrifying and amazing escapes in WWII. McCormac and his taciturn Aussie sidekick Donaldson completely outwitted the enemy despite extraordinary odds against them. It is a story of courage, endurance and compassion and makes for a very gripping read
