Weary: King of The River

Author(s): Sue Ebury


In a wartime nightmare of starvation, disease, brutality and death, Sir Edward "Weary" Dunlop's courage and compassion made him an Australian legend. During more than three years as a surgeon in the notorious work camps and vast hospital camps along the Burma-Thailand railway, he worked tirelessly to save lives and get men home to their families. Fellow prisoners regarded him as "a symbol of hope and a rock". This new, illustrated biography of Weary includes more than 150 images as well as never-before-published material about his betrayal to his captors. Weary was the quintessential Australian all-rounder - brilliant student, outstanding sportsman and irrepressible larrikin who dedicated his life to caring for people.

2010. Reprint. A near fine copy.
