This book is an biography of Australian POW legend Sir Edward "Weary" Dunlop. Being an account of his war years and civil life.
In a wartime nightmare of starvation, disease, brutality and death, Sir Edward 'Weary' Dunlop's courage and compassion made him an Australian legend. During more than three years as a surgeon in the notorious work camps and vast hospital camps along the Burma-Thailand railway, he worked tirelessly to save lives and get men home to their families. He confronted his captors fearlessly; three times he was tortured and taken out to be executed, only to be reprieved at the last moment.
Fellow prisoners regarded him as 'a symbol of hope and a rock'.
