Review:

"'An extraordinary story of torture and reconciliation - I turned the last page weeping tears of sorrow, pride and gratitude' John McCarthy"

From the Publisher:

A naive young man, a radio enthusiast and radio buff, was caught up in the fall of the British Empire at Singapore in 1942. He was put to work on the Railway of Death - the Japanese line from Thailand to Burma. This was the most disastrous engineering project in history, which killed 250,000 Allied prisoners and Thai labourers. Lomax helped to build a radio so that he and his comrades could follow news of the war. The Japanese discovered the radio and Lomax was exhaustively and brutally tortured. One of his tormentors was a young Japanese interpreter; Lomax never forgot him. Despite an outwardly successful life, Lomax was emotionally ruined by his experiences and could never share them with anyone. Almost 50 years after the war, his life was changed by the discovery that his interrogator, the Japanese interpreter, was still alive. This is the story of a tragic life and a transformed old age.
