Lost Souls of the River Kwai : Experiences of a British Soldier on the Railway of Death Paperback / softback
by Bill Read, Mitch Peeke
This is the moving story of a young man who found himself along with thousands of his comrades in the nightmare of Japanese captivity.
Unlike so many (it is said that one Commonwealth POW died for every sleeper laid) Bill lived to tell the tale.
Indeed it is remarkable that this story has not been told before, so graphic are Bill's memories of the hardships and horrors.
The book goes on to describe how the experiences of those years have affected his life since.
