A RIVER KWAI STORY The Sonkrai Tribunal
Rowland, Robin
ISBN: 1741144221
Allen & Unwin Crows Nest 2007 1st Edition
 Paperback With photographic illustrations and maps, a very good copy. More prisoners of war died at Sonkrai than any other camp on the infamous River Kwai Railway. 'F Force - seven thousand Australian and British POWs - was sent by the Japanese to build the toughest section of the railway in the mountains between Thailand and Burma. Three thousand died from slave labour, disease, starvation and exposure to the never-ending monsoon rain. Why did so many die? After the war, a military tribunal tried five Japanese and two Koreans for those deaths. This account of the 1946 trial, where seven former guards from the infamous River Kwai camp were put on trial for their lives before a military tribunal in Singapore, tells for the first time the story of F Force from all sides - Australian, British and Japanese - from the lowest private to the lieutenant colonels in command. Along with the testimony, verdict, and the surprise sentence, A River Kwai Story sheds new light on what really happened on the Railway of Death. ; 230 x 150mm; [viii], 416 pages Near Fine
