Summary
"This is a translation of the only known detailed account of the building of the notorious 262-mile long Thai-Burma Railway by one of the Japanese professional engineers who was involved in its construction ... Futamatsu's memoir also includes wide-ranging reflections on the course and conduct of 'his' war as well as his engineering experiences ... This book is introduced by Peter Davies who sets the record straight regarding the story of this book and the key people involved. This is followed by translator, Ewart Escritt's original introduction to his translation of Futamatsu's memoir which also includes a detailed account of his own POW experiences as well as his reflections on the war and its outcomes"--Jacket
