Railwaymen in the War: Tales by Japaneses Railway Soldiers in Burma and Thailand, 1941-47

£39.99

Product description

Published in 2005 by Palgrave Macmillan. Illustrated with black & white photographs, maps, and tables of data. Includes an index.

The Japanese railway soldiers, who built the notorious Burma-Thailand railway in 1942-43, earned an unenviable reputation for brutality, but they have not hitherto told their own story. This is the first book to bring to light the testimonies of the soldiers of the Emperor, who worked with 55,200 British, Australian and Dutch prisoners of war in the construction of the 415 kilometre railway.

In excellent condition throughout. Crisp and clean with a tight binding.
