Riassunto: The guns of February did their grisly work in 1942, marking the final stage of Japan's Malayan campaign. They were fired by Japanese soldiers moving into the heart of the British Empire in Southeast Asia. And they were fired by British troops as they tried to fend off the Japanese.

Who were these Japanese soldiers? English-language accounts provide few answers. Henry Frei set out to discover more about these men. He read their memoirs and interviewed survivors. The result is a vivid portrait of youthful soldiers caught up in a military campaign that seemed likely to cost them their lives.

To tell this story, Henry Frei wrote a book that reads like a novel, following a small number of Japanese soldiers through their mad dash down the Peninsula and into the inferno of burning oil tanks and bursting shells that was Singapore shortly after the British surrender. But this is not a novel. The imaages and words are those of Japanese soldiers who experienced those fateful days, men who survived the guns of February but would be haunted by their echo for the rest of their days.

L'autore: Henry FREI was Swiss by birth, and was a scholar of Japanese with a particular interest in Japan's wartime advance to the south. He taught for many years at Tsukuba University in Japan before his death in 2002.
