Summary (From the publisher):

In one of the most famous and widely-read novels of our time, Pierre Boulle tells the story of Colonel Nicholson, brilliant officers, disciplinarian, perfectionist, whose passion for duty led him to perform an almost impossible feat of military genius for the Japanese Army he hated.

When Colonel Nicholson's Japanese captors ordered him to build a strategic assault bridge in Southeast Asia, the Colonel's code of military honor left him no choice but to obey. Though they were all sick and wounded, he set his men to work, toiling in the jungle heat. He intended to complete a perfect bridge in record time -- even though his Imperial Majesty's Army would use it for the invasion of India.

Meanwhile, halfway across the continent, "Force 316" of the British Intelligence was already plotting how to blow up the bridge.
