There appear to be 2 paperback books by Ernest Gordon. To End All Wars published by Zondervan and Miracle on the River Kwai published by Fount. Two titles appearing to contain exactly the same text. The Zondervan edition is in slightly larger format with a larger, clearer font on marginally better quality paper. The big difference is the Zondervan has 8 full size pages of B & W photos. I know this because I bought both. I thought there might be some additional chapters, a reflection etc but no - it's the same story in the same words in the same order . Don't get me wrong - it's a strong powerful story, very well covered in other reviews of 'both' books. But, it's the same story. Thought you might like to know.

"A magnificent book...do read it." - Bishop of Coventry on B.B.C.

"This description of the reality of Christian love, discovered in the hell of unspeakable prisoner-of-war conditions, says more to the average man than the most brilliant treatise of apologetics." - David H.C. Read

"The whole story is one that brings the reality of the Christian Gospel right into the 20th century; it is a story of triumph not of cynicism but of faith, faith amounting to certainty."

"Captain Gordon witnessed atrocities worse than any shown on films...till out of despair a new Christian hope and witness were born." - Birmingham Post

"Unquestionably one of the most wonderful stories of World War II." - Scotsman

This wonderful book is accessible not only to Christians but to those interested in the war in the Far East during the Second World War and the prisoner of war camps run by the Japanese. There is a great deal of historical interest in it, from Captain Gordon's attempt to escape at the beginning of the book on a sail boat to his capture and the hell of captivity. Nonetheless this is primarily a Christian work and a hugely inspiring one at that. There is little theology, rather, this is a memoir of Christian love in action.

The book cover was a disgrace as was the overall condition of the book. My experience of online shopping has not been very good!
