About this book
98 year old Twigg tells his remarkable true story of surviving a POW camp in Burma during WWII. The Japanese Imperial Army forced him and other prisoners to build the Burma railway along the Kwai river through 3 years of hell.
Called up in 1940, the author expected to be fighting Germans. Instead, he found himself caught up in the worst military defeat in modern British history - the fall of Singapore to the Japanese. He made the deadly jungle, with its malaria, cholera, swollen rivers, lethal snakes and exhausting heat, work for him. This title tells his story.
