This short novel carries a powerful punch. The British Colonel Nicholson is the exemplary solider; he is the epitome of courage, leadership, hard work and determination. These ideals become tangible when the construction for a bridge begins and Nicholson and his troops are required to build it in a Japanese labor camp.

A look at pride and duty. A sub plot(written in the 50;s) is the patronizing view of the British to people of colour, A quick read that has a variance to the film. Worth reading.
