Burma Railway: A Visual Recollection by Otto Kreefft [2004]

£45.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Slim paperback, published by Otto Kreefft. First English-language edition, 2004 (first published in Dutch in 1998). Translated from the Dutch by John Webb, Netteke Crombie and Otto Kreefft. With many illustrations, mostly in colour.

From the back cover:
In World War II, more than 12,000 Allied prisoners of war, including 4,000 Dutch, lost their lives during the construction of the infamous Burma railway. Through very detailed drawings and explanatory text we have tried in this book to sketch the circumstances in which the prisoners of war had to work. Every illustration will have its own personal meaning for those who worked on the railway, and for those who did not have to suffer it, a few drawings may tell more than a thousand words.

Like new. The price reflects the rarity of this book.
