Large hardback, dustwrapper, illustrated, xvi + 391 pages, in Very Good condition.
The fifth volume in this magnificent series covers the story of the mails to and from American servicemen captured in the Philippines and British and Australian servicemen and senior officers of many nationalities transported to Taiwan. It also covers the postal history of the more than 4,000 civilians held in the Philippines. Mostly American, they included over 1,000 British and many other nationalities. Many examples of mail are shown with various censors and directional markings to and from the camps. As with other centres where POWs were taken prisoner, many were transferred overseas and the book documents these transfers. Uniquely philatelic activity continued in the civilian camps in the Philippines and a chapter is devoted to this subject. There is also a chapter on the postal history of the Guerrillas in the Philippines. In Taiwan the principal camps were in Kinkaseki, Taichu, Heito, Shirakawa, Taihoku and Karenko and mail to and from these camps is described and illustrated. Profusely illustrated with more than 400 illustrations, mostly in colour.
