    By Samuel Lin Nov 9, 2014 When I first looked at the cover I thought it is about the well trodden infamous Death Railway on the river Kwai in Thailand Burma border. I could not have been more wrong. It is about the drama, devastation and sufferings and twists and turns and havoc when WW11 raged through Burma. Unfortunately mankind never seems to learn. The book is arranged in short chapters but they are so well paced and smooth flowing one forgets how fast the pages are being read.The story of a family of seven in which only two brothers survived and never met again and the fruitless search by the elder one is heart breaking. The author's role in tracking down the descendants in Burma more than half a century later gives hope to those in similar situations. The book is well researched and written succinctly covering a wide range of the war torn theatre that was Burma in WW11. It also shows the social history of the marginalised Anglo-Burmans who fought for the country that did not... More > want them under the colonial system which looked down on them. Before the reader puts the book away, one will surely browse again at the pictures, especially of Dumbar Bahadoor Chettri and wonder what the content of the letter of the Japanese soldier shot by the author's father was.< Less
