Part biography, part history; Julie Summers tells the story of Lieutenant Colonel Philip Toosey and his careful direction of those Allied Servicemen, imprisoned alongside him. He managed the balancing act between compliance and subversion and was instrumental in ensuring the Allied POW not only survived but also gained self-respect; in what was a harsh environment, rife with malnutrition, disease and brutality.
