Bahau, the Elephant & the Ham

Bahau, the Elephant & the Ham

by David Miller

Publication Date: 19/05/2015


The Japanese Occupation of Singapore during the Second World War saw the lack of food on the island reach critical levels. This prompted the Japanese military administration to encourage civilians - mainly Chinese and Catholic Eurasians to start farming communes deep in the unforgiving Malayan jungle. Largely inept at working the land, many Eurasians fell to disease and malnutrition. Others, unable to cope with the living primitive conditions, simply gave up the fight to survive. 'Bahau, the Elephant & the Ham' charts with stark vividness and a touch of humour the day-to-day struggles of one family to endure against the odds.
