Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the building of the Burma-Siam Railway, this book examines the episode in its strategic, logistic and manpower contexts. Its purposes, planning, construction and ultimate contribution to Japan's overall strategy are assessed from the perspective not only of the Japanese soldiers and the Allied prisoners, but also of the Burmese and Indian labourers whose plight has less frequently been considered.
