One of these was Alan Warren, a colonel of British marines. He took the war behind enemy lines and, when captured, was a thorn in the flesh of his Japanese guards. Colonel Warren spent three years in prison camps along the River Kwai. Though prisoners died every day, Cocky Warren stood his ground and raised morale to the highest possible level. As one contemporary said of him, He was a master of time and space, fearless, upright, downright and straightforward.His story, clearly told, is a tribute to a courageous man and a valuable addition to military history.
