This is the little known story of a daring escape, by three young officers of Indian Army (IA), from a Japanese World War II Prisoner of War (POW) Camp, and their torturous trek to India and freedom. The trio escaped from POW Camp in Singapore in May 1942 and made their way through Malaya (now Malaysia), Thailand and Burma (now Myanmar), to reach India. In Burma they split into two groups. Balbir & Parab moved north through Myitkyina and enemy-held territories, before they contacted an allied patrol in the heavily jungled, hill tracts of upper Burma.
