The Men Of The Line

"When we got to the Line, we didn't know what to expect. We knew we weren't going to be treated with kid gloves, but we didn't expect the fourteen to sixteen hours a day on bloody 6 ounces of rice... They worked us to death slowly."

The Men Of The Line recounts the stories of the Thai-Burma Railway survivors, brought together by author, producer and director Pattie Wright, and published in 2008.
