This month marks the 75th anniversary of the Sandakan Death Marches, the brutal forced marching of Australian POWs by the Japanese in Borneo, which resulted in the deaths of more than 2400 prisoners.

In this confronting episode, historian Lynette Silver reveals the true story of the death marches, the horror of the ordeal for the Australian prisoners, and the legacy they have left us. (Please note that this episode may be distressing for some listeners.)
