This is war as experienced in a Japanese POW camp in Java in 1942, but, above all, war as experienced in the hearts and souls of men.
This is the story of two British officers whose spirit the Japanese try to break. Yet out of the terrible violence and hardship strange bonds of love and friendship are forged between the prisoners - and their gaolers.
This is a battle for survival that becomes a battle of contrasting wills and cultures as the intensities of the men's relationships develop.
