Abstract

The thesis uses Keijo POW camp as a case study to argue that Japanese POW propaganda was co-ordinated by the Huryojohokyoku and that it succeeded inn confusing the

International Committee of the Red Cross and the British government. In particular, it demonstrates the means by which Keijo was manipulated to present an overly positive picture of POW incarceration to both internal and external audiences, and also highlights contradictions in the propaganda.
