forced by the Japanese troop. During that time, Thailand was the alliance of Japan and gave a big support to the Japanese army. The Death Railway was a route to pass Myanmar and to invade India. Japan was aware that by using the sea troop to fight with England, their armies would be attacked by the alliances. For this reason, they decided to build this railway. The railway was named after the event in history. There is a saying that “the numbers of the railway, is equal to the numbers of the death labor used to build this railway”.
