'I have the testimony of hundreds of Australians who had served with me and who accompanied Weary to Burma and Siam that he was both their inspiration and the main instrument of their physical and spiritual survival.'

About Sir Edward Dunlop

Lieutenant Colonel Sir Edward 'Weary' Dunlop was an Australian surgeon who was renowned for his leadership whilst being held prisoner by the Japanese during World War II. A courageous leader and compassionate doctor, he restored morale in the terrible prison camps and jungle hospitals. After the war he continued to work as a surgeon as well as becoming involved in a number of health and educational organisations, and worked tirelessly in the community until his death in 1993. His diaries were first published in 1986. A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR: It's difficult not to be moved and shocked by 'Weary' Dunlop's extraordinary account of life as a prisoner-of-war. The details of daily life and the trials of surgery with no equipment and no anaesthetic are told in a matter-of-fact way by a man who displayed tremendous courage and resilience in the face of brutality and desperation.
