Bamboo Jack – The Death Railway
Time: June 1942
Location: Thailand and Burma
Story: The Burma Railway, also known also as the Death Railway, the Thailand-Burma Railway and similar names, is a 415 km (258 mile) railway between Bangkok, Thailand and Rangoon, Burma (now Myanmar), built by the Empire of Japan during World War II, to support its forces in the Burma campaign.
Forced labor was used in its construction. About 60,000 Asian laborers and 100,000 Allied prisoners of war (POWs) worked on the railway. Of these, around 9,000 Asian laborers and 16,000 Allied POWs died as a direct result of the project. The dead POWs included 6,318 British personnel, 2,815 Australians, 2,490 Dutch, about 356 Americans and some Canadians.
