Eric Cordingly’s daughter, Louise, has produced three books about his time as a Far East Prisoner of War (FEPOW). The Changi Cross and Down to Bedrock are available as either paperback or digital Kindle editions.
In the newly published Echoes of Captivity, Louise has gathered together 35 interviews with the families of the men (and one woman) who returned from three and a half years of captivity.
