Beschreibung

In 1942 a young railway enthusiast and radio buff was caught up in the troubles in Singapore. Put to work on the "Railway of Death", the Japanese line from Thailand to Burma, he was brutally tortured and emotionally destroyed by his experiences. It was nearly fifty years later, when he discovered that his interrogator was still alive, that his life was changed. The story ends with the reconciliation of the two men. "A profound and beautifully written story of heart-rending honesty" "Sunday Times".

Pressestimmen

"A profound and beautifully written story...one of the most moving accounts to have come out of the Second World War" Sunday Times "This book has to be read" Independent "This beautiful, awkward book tells the story of a fine and awkward man. Here, I think, is an account that rises above mere timeliness and comes near to being a classic of autobiography" -- Ian Jack Guardian "A powerful memoir placing his wartime experience in the context of his whole life... It prompted other former Japanese prisoners to write from all around the world" Daily Telegraph "An extraordinary story... I turned the last page weepihng tears of sorrow, pride and gratitude" -- John McCarthy
