    Book details


This is the little known story of a daring escape, by three young officers of Indian Army (IA), from a Japanese World War II Prisoner of War (POW) Camp, and their torturous trek to India and freedom. The trio escaped from POW Camp in Singapore in May 1942 and made their way through Malaya (now Malaysia), Thailand and Burma (now Myanmar), to reach India. In Burma they split into two groups. Balbir & Parab moved north through Myitkyina and enemy-held territories, before they contacted an allied patrol in the heavily jungled, hill tracts of upper Burma.

Brig (Retd) Jasbir Singh, SM, took premature retirement in 2004, after serving in the Army for 34 years. He took part in India-Pakistan War, 1971 and was wounded during operations behind enemy lines in East Pakistan (1971 War) and twice decorated for gallantry during operations. He now leads a retired life in the hills of Ranikhet (Uttarakhand), India. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
