This review is from: Survivor on the River Kwai: The Incredible Story of Life on the Burma Railway (Paperback)
This is a fantastic read for anyone wishing to learn about what our WW2 hero's went through to give us our freedom. I laughed & cried at the endless accounts of Reg Twigg. The book immerses you into the life of a solider at this time in history, & you get the feeling you are side by side with them as your turn page after page. The honesty of the book is something quite rare, nothing is softened for the reader, it's how it was fact!
I believe these are the kind of books that should be part of the curriculum in all secondary schools so that more generations can learn the facts of war. It's such a pity that Mr Twigg didn't survive long enough to see this published.
