The Thai-Burma railway, also known as the 'Death Railway' saw 60,000 Prisoners of War working in appalling conditions, under Japanese imprisonment.  The Japanese captors offered no medical treatement for the tropical diseases and malnutrition that they would succumb to. It was then left to the Allied POW doctors to treat the the sick with little medical equipment or drugs. Despite this, with great ingenuity they managed to save hundreds of lives.
