This amazing story is about the horrendous experiences thousands of Australian POWs endured at the hands of the cruel Japanese after their capture in Singapore in 1942. These POWs were imprisoned at a camp just outside the infamous Changi jail where they became slaves carrying supplies to Japanese troops, or building a road through the center of the island.A year later many endured a grueling train trip north to Thailand where they were forced to work on the Burma Railway. The tortures, the hunger, and the constant terror they experienced are graphically described.

This book is not for the faint-hearted.From Thailand, they were shipped to Japan to work in the coal mines at Omuta, just across the bay from Nagasaki. One of the prisoners describes what he saw and felt on that fateful day when the atomic bomb was dropped, and what happened afterwards.Readers will wonder how these brave Australian men could survive the many terrible tortures and deprivations imposed on them.

This book will have you gasping at the cruel treatment the prisoners endured. You will also learn how the leaders of the Japanese and Allied armies acted and why so many men lost their lives defending a lost cause.
