No Dram of Mercy is one woman's memoir of her struggles during the Japanese occupation of Malaya, when she and her doctor husband were arrested for secretly helping resistance fighters. 

Sybil Kathigasu candidly describes her experience, from the practicalities of daily life, to the constant fear of discovery and her harrowing ordeal at the hands of the Kempetei military police. 

A devout Catholic, she had pledged to write a book about those years if she survived. The result is a vivid account not only of the horrors of the Japanese occupation, but also of a woman's courage and fortitude in the face of a cruel and ruthless invaders. 

Republished after seven decades, No Dram of Mercy is a testament to Sybil's indomitable spirit and devotion to the fight for freedom from oppression. It is also a poignant reminder of the hardships and tribulations endured by a previous generation of Malayans during World War II.
