Acerca de


Leo Rawlings' story is told in his own pictures and his own words. For the first time the cruelty inflicted on the prisoners of war by their own officers is depicted, as well as shocking images of POW life. This edition includes pictures never before published and many printed for the first time in color, as well as an extensive new commentary by Dr. Nigel Stanley, an expert on Rawlings and the medical problems faced on the Burma Railway. More than just a commentary on the history and terrible facts behind Rawlings' work, it stands on its own as a guide to the hidden lives of the prisoners. For the first time, the pictures and original texts are printed in a large format edition. It includes an account of how Rawlings' book was published in Japan by Takashi Nagase (well known from Eric Lomax's book The Railway Man) in the early 1980s.
