Don Binns and his daughter JoAnn Eunice Binns (e-Book), "A Survivors Story: An American POW in Japan during WW II". Interesting e-book but written from memory rather than with use of a diary. Binns was a Navy man captured on Guam. Anecdotal and with numerous errors.
UPDATE - Book available; see also webpage on "Don and Eunice." Many photos of camp and POWs in Gallery.
