The Railway Man

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.

Here, I think, is an account that rises above mere timeliness and comes near to being a classic of autobiography" -- Ian Jack Guardian "A powerful memoir placing his wartime experience in the context of his whole life... It prompted other former Japanese prisoners to write from all around the world" Daily Telegraph "An extraordinary story... I turned the last page weepihng tears of sorrow, pride and gratitude" -- John McCarthy
