Title: The Devil's Grin: Why and How the Japanese Military Imprisoned Dutch Civilians Living in the Dutch East Indies During the 1941-1945 Pacific War.
Description: Toronto, Self-published. 2013, First Edition. Soft Cover. 186 pp, 9" H. Signed on title page: "Toni Harting / 31 May (?) 13". B&w photographs, map. "(A)ims to provide insight into, and information about, the mentality, philosophy, and motivation of the Japanese people, especially the Japanese military, before and during the 1941-1945 war in the Pacific, as well as their system of civilian concentration camps in the Dutch East Indies colony in Southeast Asia. The book also portrays the story of a young Dutch teenage boy developing into an eighteen-year-old man under brutal circumstances as a civilian prisoner of war in Japanese concentration camps in the Dutch East Indies. The story is formatted not as a conventional detailed memoir but as an information-presenting, journalistic report inspired by, and to a large extent based on, my own experiences, observations, and thoughts as a civilian prisoner of war." Interior - light soft crease to fore-edge of first page, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - two very small faint soiling marks on top of text block, one small light stain on fore-edge of text block, very minor edge wear. Very Good. Signed by Author.
