“Chint Singh: The man who should have died” is the compelling true story of survival and courage during World War II…

Chint Singh was a chief witness against the Japanese military at the war crimes trials. He was captured by the Japanese army, along with approximately 3000 other Indian POWs. They were then shipped to Papua New Guinea to work. Chint was one of the few Indian POWs to survive this burdened existence for years until rescued by the Australian forces. 

Out of the 600 in his work party, only 11 survived. 

Chint Singh was a primary witness in the war crimes trials that followed soon after the surrender of the Japanese in August, 1945. While involved at these trials, his ten fellow POW survivors boarded a plane to take them home, but the plane tragically crashed killing everyone on board. 

From an historical perspective, the story of Chint Singh highlights the role of Indian soldiers in the WW2 against Japan and their experiences following the fall of Singapore in 1942.

This book reveals the atrocities committed by Japanese forces on Indian POWs but also reveals how some miraculously survived and shared their story with the world.

“A personable and humbled portrayal of a single man’s desire to survive and protect his comrades…moving in its sense of justice and its cruelty to the lives of soldiers during a terrible time in world history…well worth reading…5 stars” Anthony, Indiebook reviewer.
