This review is from: The Colonel of Tamarkan: Philip Toosey and the Bridge on the River Kwai (Paperback)
The book carefully explains the differences between the fiction that was the book & movie 'Bridge on the River Kwai' and the stark, horrific factual reality which the PoWs experienced. The suffering of these soldiers and the many others affected by the treatment meted out by the Imperial Japanese Army is truly awful - but needs to be told, and remembered.
