On paths of ash: the extraordinary story of an Australian prisoner of war
Robert Holman, edited by Peter Thomson
Brothers Robert and Jack Holman enlisted to fight for their country, becoming prisoners of war after the fall of Singapore. Interned at Changi, they became prison labourers on the infamous Burma-Thailand Railway, and from there went as slaves to the coal mines of Japan. Amazingly, both men survived the war. On paths of ash is Bob Holman's memoir, a remarkable story of survival and brotherly mateship. Soft cover, 302 pages.
