Author: Edward E Dunlop

SKU: 9780143003915

This extraordinary first-hand account of Sir Edward 'Weary' Dunlop's experiences as senior medical officer in the infamous prisoner-of-war camps in Java and on the Burma-Thailand Railway, is not only an account of great historical significance but also a testament to the ability of the human spirit to overcome the most unbearably cruel conditions.

'I have the testimony of hundreds of Australians who had served with me and who accompanied Weary to Burma and Siam that he was both their inspiration and the main instrument of their physical and spiritual survival.' Laurens Van Der Post 

'His experiences – and the manner in which he handled them – are what have made Weary Dunlop one of our most loved and most respected countrymen.' Herald Sun 

'Sir Edward's care and concern for his men and his unbreakable spirit made him a living legend.' Sunday Times
