Thorough and noteworthy, this biography explores the life of Sir Edward “Weary” Dunlop, an Australian surgeon who was held captive by the Japanese during World War II. With more than 150 images as well as never-before-published material about Dunlop’s betrayal of his captors, this comprehensive account examines the precarious moments Dunlop survived, including wartime starvation, disease, brutality, and near executions. Having selflessly worked to save lives in the notorious work and hospital camps along the Burma-Thailand railway, Dunlop, known for his courage and compassion, became an Australian legend.
