(p.126) 7 The Reactionaries at Changson and Sonyi
British Prisoners of the Korean War

S. P. MacKenzie

Oxford University Press

This chapter details the ways British hard-core ‘reactionaries’ — that is, resisters — coped with the penal regimen at Camp 2, Branch 2 after they were removed from their rank-and-file fellows in Pyoktong and Chongson from late 1951 onward. The nature and effects of the harsher conditions imposed by the Chinese are examined, along with the often successful efforts of the inmates themselves to maintain morale and continue to resist becoming passive tools of their captors.

Keywords:   Britain, reactionaries, penal regimen, Pyoktong, Chongson, morale
