The Railway Man: A POW's Searing Account of War, Brutality, and Forgiveness
by Lomax, Eric
276,  pp. 8vo. The autobiography of a World War II British prisoner of war tells of his captivity and torture by Japanese soldiers, one of whom he meets fifty years later. Inspiration for the 2013 movie starring Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, and Stellan Skarsgard. This account has received renewed attention since the publication of Laura Hillenbrand's Unbroken, which tells a similar story.
