A young captain in the Royal Norfolk Regiment, Reggie Burton was wounded in the closing stages of the disastrous defense of Malaya and Singapore. He vividly, yet calmly and with great dignity, describes the horror of captivity at the hands of the Japanese. After initial confusion, the true nature of their captors emerged as, increasingly debilitated, the POWs were forced into backbreaking work. This was only a taste of what was to come. Following a horrific journey in overcrowded cattle trucks, Burton and his dwindling band of colleagues were put to work building the notorious Burma Railway. Somehow he survived to tell this moving and shocking story.

Railway of Hell

This is his vivid account of the barbarism and hardship - forced labor, inadequate rations, and virtually non-existent medical care - which became the POW's lot.

The author was a young captain in The Royal Norfolk Regiment when he was captured by the Japanese and sent to work on the Burma-Siam railway, which today epitomizes one of the low points of twentieth century inhumanity. This is his vivid account of the barbarism and hardship - forced labor, inadequate rations, and virtually non-existent medical care - which became the POW's lot. There is much here that goes beyond normal comprehension - not least the fortitude, courage and lack of bitterness displayed by the author and his comrades.

Hell Train

The painting showed a Victorian train with a cowcatcher and a roaring Devil's

Imagine there was a classic supernatural chiller that Hammer Films never made. A grand epic produced at the studio’s peak, which played like a cross between the Dracula and Frankenstein films and Dr Terror’s House Of Horrors... Four passengers meet on a train journey through Eastern Europe during the First World War, and face a mystery that must be solved if they are to survive. As the Arkangel races through the war-torn countryside, they must find out: What is in the casket that everyone is so afraid of? What is the tragic secret of the veiled Red Countess who travels with them? Why is their fellow passenger the army brigadier so feared by his own men? And what exactly is the devilish secret of the Arkangel itself? Bizarre creatures, satanic rites, terrified passengers and the romance of travelling by train, all in a classically styled horror novel.
