Overview

Now A Major Motion Picture Starring Robert Carlyle and Kiefer Sutherland

‘Waking from a dream, I suddenly realized where I was: in the Death House–in a prison camp by the River Kwai. I was a prisoner of war, lying among the dead, waiting for the bodies to be carried away so that I might have more room.’
When Ernest Gordon was twenty-four he was captured by the Japanese and forced, with other British prisoners, to build the notorious ‘Railroad of Death’, where nearly 16,000 Prisoners of War gave their life. Faced with the appalling conditions of the prisoners’ camp and the brutality of the captors, he survived to become an inspiring example of the triumph of the human spirit against all odds.

To End All Wars is Ernest Gordon’s gripping true story behind both the Academy Award-winning film The Bridge on the River Kwai starring Alec Guinness and the new film To End All Wars directed by David Cunningham.

    Important Book

    After seeing movies like "The Bridge Over the River Kwai" and learning some of the history of the prison camps during WWII it was enlighting to read Gordon's book. He was there, he lived through it - no Hollywood hype, no political correctness to clean up and spin history in a certain direction. The bare truth of the horror these men endured. It is a miracle anyone would have survived. This is an important book.

    Reality Check

    This is an Outstanding read! Here is clearly told the brutality of the Japanese and the courage of the prisoners. Those who wish to liken Abu Graraib or Gitmo to the conditions and abuses these men endured need to read this work. THERE IS NO COMPARISON or basis of comparison. The author gives a moving testemony of the Power of Faith to overcome adversity.
