Excerpt Eight:

The Bridge on the River Kwai
Location: Kanchanaburi, Thailand

I remember watching The Bridge on the River Kwai growing up. This classic movie is based on the novel written by Pierre Boulle, about the construction of a bridge over the River Kwai by Allied prisoners of war, as part of the “Death Railway” during World War II. There were a number of things that I always remembered from the movie as a kid. There was William Holden’s character, who escaped from the prison camp only to return as part of a commando mission to try to destroy the bridge.
