Synopsis

For three and a half years Velmans was a POW and was sentto build a railroad through the dense jubgle on the Burma-Thailand border, to be used to invade and conquer India. Some 200,000 POWs and slave labourers died in the construction of this Railroad of Death. Loet, though suffering from malaria, dysentry, malnutrition and unspeakable mistreatment, never gave up hope...and survived. 57 years later he returned to visit the place where he should have died and out of that emotional visit came this gripping account of survival under appaling conditions.
