      Artist on the Burma–Thailand Railway: the drawings of Jack Chalker. Jack Chalker, serving in the Royal Artillery, was captured at the fall of Singapore. In October he was in a party sent to Thailand to construct the Burma–Thailand Railway. Chalker secretly made drawings of the various camps and conditions endured by the prisoners.   At its heart, the book tells the excoriating, horrific story of what it was like to be a prisoner of war forced to work on what has become known as the Death Railway between Thailand and Burma.
