During his time as a prisoner of the Japanese, Barry Baker corresponded regularly with his wife Phyllis and she in turn kept in touch with the relatives of the 68 men of his unit. These letters, together with a detailed memoir written by Baker in later life, form the basis of this account of the infamous ordeal of the Burma Railway, following events from the Fall of Singapore and incarceration in Changi Jail to the eventual liberation of the survivors.
