More About the Author

PAUL HAM is a historian specialising in 20th century conflict, war and politics. Born and raised in Sydney, Paul has spent his working life in London, Sydney and Paris. His books have been published to critical acclaim in Australia, Britain and the United States, and include: 'Hiroshima Nagasaki', a controversial new history of the atomic bombings (HarperCollins Australia 2010, Penguin Random House UK 2011, & Pan Macmillan USA 2014-15); '1914: The Year The World Ended' (Penguin Random House 2013); 'Sandakan' (Penguin Random House 2011); 'Vietnam: The Australian War' and 'Kokoda' (both published by HarperCollins, 2007 and 2004). Paul has co-written two ABC documentaries based on his work: 'Kokoda' (2010), a 2-part series on the defeat of the Japanese army in Papua in 1942 (shortlisted for the New York Documentary prize); and 'All the Way' (2012), about Australia's difficult alliance with America during the Vietnam War, which he also narrated and presented (it won the UN's Media Peace prize). Paul is the founding director of Hampress, an independent ebook publisher, and a regular contributor to Kindle Single, Amazon's new 'short book' publishing platform, for which he has written '1913: The Eve of War' and 'Young Hitler', co-written 'Honey, We Forgot the Kids', and published several titles by other authors. Hampress welcomes your ideas! A former Australia correspondent for The Sunday Times (1998-2012), Paul has a Masters degree in Economic History from London School of Economics. He lives in Sydney and Paris, and takes time off now and then to organise the Big Fat Poetry Pig-Out, an annual poetry recital, for charity.

Product Description

Review

"The most comprehensive account written about the worst single atrocity committed against Allied prisoners of war by the Japanese. Ham has written of these events with great power and assiduous research. Surely this is now the definitive account of the Sandakan death marches" (Sydney Morning Herald)

Book Description

The brilliantly told but harrowing story of the Borneo Death Marches of 1944/5

I was in Borneo on a trip and we followed the death march by transport in a small bus all the way up to Sandakan where there was a museum dedicated to the handful of men who survived. I was lucky to be on the bus and even at that I was dehydrated and could only imagine what it must have been like for our soldiers. We must never forget their sacrifice.

Harrowing book. Not a light bedtime read but I wanted to buy it because I have seen the graves of these tragic men and know the places and conditions they were living in, and the routes they walked. It is an amazing story of man's bravery, stoicism under terrible torture and the terrible cruelty men can inflict on their fellow men.

A compelling read, you find yourself wincing at the atrocities and somehow disbelieving the cruelty of the Japanese soldiers. As ever with a kindle version there are unfortunately no photographic images.

This powerful and exceptional book reminds us all of the hidden elements of a dreadful war.
Those of us who had family members caught up in it can only shudder at their courage in the face of such horror and cruelty.
It is not enjoyable but it is essential reading. I recommend it.

How tough were these men! Nothing should ever be allowed to drift form our memory of these dreadful times.
One of the best books I have ever read, well written and full of information
