The Imperial Japanese Army is everywhere triumphant, crushing all resistance in its path. The fall of Singapore is only a matter of time. When it comes the Allied forces must escape as best they can amid the chaos. For those that fall into enemy hands the fate is unknown horror and humiliation. This is the remarkable story of five hundred sullen and rebellion men from all three services, who were transformed into a unity with the esprit-de-corps of an old established regiment. As prisoners of war they were plunged to the depths of degradation and torment by their Japanese captors, forced to build the infamous Burma-Siam Railway in a hostile landscape where no European had set foot before." - from dust-jacket blurb.
