The train is hijacked by the prisoners and they escape to form a renegade bunch which turn the Japanese occupiers into twists and turns trying to re-capture them. There are American Marines, Australians, and several Chinese captors who are very inventive. They are there for over two years and finally taken out to return to duty. Lively action, personal heroism, and life and death struggles.

This is not to reinvent World War II, but to tell a piece of history that might have actually happened. One can never tell, however, since many secrets hide in the deepest parts of the military archives.


This book reveals how much the author has studied and researched his subject before writing the book. Someone once said, “Reading this book is better than sex.”
— Gene Thornton,
retired police officer
