This extraordinary first-hand account of Sir Edward 'Weary' Dunlop's experiences as senior medical officer in the infamous prisoner-of-war camps in Java and on the Burma-Thailand Railway, is not only an account of great historical significance but also a testament to the ability of the human spirit to overcome the most unbearably cruel conditions. Illustrated with photographs and the drawings of Ray Parkin and Jack Chalker.
This copy is in very good condition. There is a little creasing to the top edge of the wrapper, which has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve. The book is in good solid condition with clean page and secure binding but with a small crease to the pages top outer corner.
