Synopsis:
The capture of Singapore was crucial to the Japanese plants to sweep across India and take a foothold in the Middle East, giving the Axis powers a vice like grip on the world outside of the Americas. Vital to the Japanese was a supply line, given that they were failing to maintain sea superiority in the Pacific, so they put the 50,000 P.O.W's captured in the fall of Singapore to work building a railway that even in peacetime, with the technology available, engineers said could not be built.
A railway from Thanbyzuzayat in Burma to Bamyong in Thailand, 270 miles long, with 10 miles of bridges, through harsh jungles and mountainous terrain that cost the lives of almost 500 Allied troops per mile of track. This is the true story of the 'Bridge Over The River Kwai'.
