    PDF/EPUB The Railway Man PDF/EPUB ´ The Railway ePUB ↠ ò formresponse.co.uk railway download, The Railway kindle, The Railway Man PDF/EPUBThis is an extraordinary personal rendition of the ordeal of this man’s life The writing is to the point and very poignant giving much feeling to the sufferings the author enduredThe author had a rather sheltered life in Scotland His descriptions of his upbringing and his infatuation with trains give stark contrast to the later events Given his predilection for structure the army also provided that when he was recruited at the outbreak of war in 1939 He trained somewhat in Scotland and England – and then was shipped to India and finally Singapore in November of 1941 His entire life was shattered when he was taken prisoner of war by the Japanese when Singapore surrendered in February of 1942 We are provided with searing portrayals of his long incarceration – the torture of himself and his comrades his interrogations lengthy imprisonment in small cells where silence was mainta
