The Railway Man
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
During the Second World War Eric Lomax was forced to work on the notorious Burma-Siam Railway and was tortured by the Japanese for making a crude radio.
Left emotionally scarred and unable to form normal relationships, Lomax suffered for years until, with the help of his wife, Patti Lomax, and of the Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture, he came terms with what happened. Fifty years after the terrible events, he was able to meet one of his tormentors.
The Railway Man is a story of innocence betrayed, and of survival and courage in the face of horror.

Incredible true story.
Mr Lomax is a true hero and gentleman. Thank you for this book
The railway man
A movingly brilliant account of brutal times I hope we will never know
A moving tale
This is not the sort of book I would usually read; however, Mr. Lomax describes his terrible experiences in Thailand during the war and the long lasting effects they had on him with disturbingly matter of fact delivery.
His description of his feelings and mental state along with the wonderful help he received leads to an uplifting end.
