This chapter discusses the capture of Hong Kong shortly after it was attacked by the Japanese on December 8, 1941. It shows that the prisoners of war (POWs) were taken from the very start of the fighting, which contradicts the belief that the garrison was taken prisoner en masse upon surrendering. The rest of the chapter describes the condition of the prisoners in the camp, complete with photographs, a map of all the POW camps in Hong Kong, and diagrams of the North Point POW Camp, Shamshuipo POW Camp, the Ma Tau Chung POW Camp, the Argyle Street POW Camp, and the Stanley Internment Camp.

Keywords:   capture, Hong Kong, prisoners of war, POWs, condition, POW camps, diagrams
