LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 15, 2021 / — 15 July 2021, London. Chiselbury Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Before Hiroshima by Dr Jacqueline Jeynes.

Before Hiroshima tells the story of the fall of Hong Kong and Singapore and the aftermath during World War II. It recounts the true stories of those who were there and who became prisoners of war or internees, as well the ordeals of those that waited for them or lived with them when they came home.

Commenting on the announcement, Stuart Leasor, Chiselbury’s publisher, said, “We are delighted to have published Before Hiroshima. It is an important work recounting the terrible stories of so many people. Jacqueline Jeynes combines her experience as a distinguished writer on business management with her intimate knowledge of and work with the Far East Prisoners of War community to tell a story that should not be forgotten.”

Jacqueline Jeynes added, “I’m excited with the publication of Before Hiroshima. This is a subject close to my heart, and even more so since I learned of the experiences of my own father. It is dedicated to all those who suffered as prisoners of war or internees in the Far East, those that sadly died there, those that returned, and those that waited for them.”
