Behind Bamboo - Hell on the Burma Railway

Author(s): Rohan Rivett


Foreword by Weary Dunlop.

The bestselling memoir of life as an Australian POW on the notorious Thai-Burma railway.

Rohan Rivett was a journalist in Singapore when it fell to the Japanese in 1942. He escaped south - across the treacherous Bangka Strait - to Indonesia, but was soon captured and became just one of thousands of POWs struggling for existence in a Japanese camp. The struggle was to last for more than three years.

Behind Bamboois unflinching in its honesty and haunting in its realism. It is a vivid, compelling testament to the Australians' will to survive and their unassailable spirit in the face of the most callous inhumanity.
