Product Description

At the age of 24, Ernest Gordon was captured by the Japanese while escaping from Sumatra during the Second World War. Along with other British prisoners he was marched into the jungle to build the notorious "Railroad of Death" and the bridge over the river Kwai. Gordon describes vividly the appalling conditions of the prisoners' camp and the inhumane treatment they received from the guards. The miracle is that in these horrific circumstances seeds of faith among the men sow forgiveness, unselfishness and love. This is the gripping story of triumph and heroism which has inspired countless readers since its first British publication in 1963. It is the true story behind the Academy Award winning film "The Bridge over the River Kwai" starring the late Alec Guinness.

Publisher's Description

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.

    One of my favorite old movies is the Bridge over the river Kwai, somehow God lead me to the true story of what happened during those events. The movie version pales in comparison to the miracles that took place in the pit of hell these men found themselves. And how dignity and heroism was alive in the midst of such depravity. And just how God moved in the hearts of these men in the middle of their darkest days. It is an incredible true story and everyone should read this book believer or non believer like the Hiding Place, it will impact your faith forever. Recently I watch the movie version of this book and it was difficult to watch but again it could not tell the details that were in the book fully. MUST READ THE BOOK and share it especially a men's group. I'm a real girly girl but I so touched by this war story. Warning it has extreme graphic violent content.

    One of the best books I've ever read. Interesting and inspiring. It shows how the worst of circumstances can be overcome by the tangible relationship with The Creator.

    Ernest Gordon was a captain in the Scottish Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders regiment serving in Sumatra at the beginning of WWII. He and those who served with him were taken prisoners and forced to build the Burma railroad, including the infamous "Bridge over the River Kwai". The cost was high, 60,000 Allied POWs and 270,000 Asian workers were made salves, for each mile of the railroad 393 lives were lost. They saw how low man can sink but they also saw, by the power of the Almighty God, how high man can rise. This is an inspiring true story, well worth reading. Through these trials God molded and changed many men giving them "the will to survive and the courage to forgive", who after the war used the compassion and love God showed them the help there fellow man.
