The Railway Man

by Eric Lomax - £9.99  Vintage (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780099583844 | ISBN 10: 0099583844

Now a major film starring Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman and Jeremy Irvine (Warhorse).
 
During the Second World War Eric Lomax was forced to work on the notorious Burma-Siam Railway and was tortured by the Japanese for making a crude radio.
 
Left emotionally scarred and unable to form normal relationships, Lomax suffered for years until, with the help of his wife, Patti Lomax, and of the Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture, he came terms with what happened. Fifty years after the terrible events, he was able to meet one of his tormentors.
 
The Railway Man is a story of innocence betrayed, and of survival and courage in the face of horror.
