Lynette Ramsay Silver

Sandakan – A Conspiracy of Silence

Uncovering the horrific story of the Sandakan Prisoner of War Camp, Lynette Ramsay Silver details the bungled rescue attempt and deadly flaws within the senior ranks that ultimately stole the lives of all but 6 Australian men in the untamed conditions of North Borneo. Through painstaking research and interviews with survivors, as well as a study of Japanese records, Lynette has pieced together a detailed and highly readable account of the lives and ultimate fate of Sandakan’s POW’s. The integration of first-hand accounts and historical records forges a merciless portrayal of the crisp trepidation and unwarranted deception behind what has become WWII’s darkest and most deadly secret.
