CHINT SINGH: THE MAN WHO SHOULD HAVE DIED is a compelling true story of the survival, resilience, courage, and deep sense of duty of an Indian officer during World War 2.

With the fall of Singapore in World War 2 in 1942, approximately 2400 Indian POWs were shipped to Papua New Guinea to work as labourers. Many, over 2 years, lost their lives in the thick jungles and swamps due to tropical diseases, malnutrition, torture by Japanese forces or bombing by Allied forces. Chint Singh along other ten soldiers were sole survivors rescued by Australian forces. Tragically his ten mates died in plane crash while they were heading back home. This made Chint Singh the sole survivor of almost 2400 Indian POWs.

The most intriguing questions:

• How did Chint Singh managed to survive?

• What ordeals did he go through while in Japanese captivity?

• Why was he chosen as chief witness in the war crimes trails in Australia against the Japanese?

To find the answers read this remarkable true story of Chint Singh!
