The best-selling classic about the power of love and forgiveness in a Japanese POW camp — now a major motion picture starring Kiefer Sutherland and Robert Carlyle

In 1942 Ernest Gordon was captured by the Japanese and forced to help build "the railroad of death" along the valley of the River Kwai in Southeast Asia. While he was a prisoner of war he witnessed terrible atrocities and faced appalling conditions, yet through God's grace he was able to forgive his captors.

To End All Wars is Gordon's gripping true story behind the 1957 Academy Award-winning film The Bridge on the River Kwai, and its remake To End All Wars, to be released this fall.
