From jacket flap:

The Tiger of Malaya is a first-hand account of the trial of General Tomoyuki Yamashita, the alleged notorious Japanese war criminal, and the trial of “Death March” Masaharu Homma. It is told by a man who was the official guard of General Yamashita and a veteran of the European and Pacific theaters of war.

The most fascinating part of Lieutenant Colonel Kenworthy’s narrative is his description of the trials themselves and the inner struggles of the prisoners. Contained in this book are the individual Japanese commanders’ personal analyses of their country’s strategy and their statements of responsibility.
