In 1938 Johnny Sherwood was a young professional footballer on the brink of an England career. By 1942 he was a soldier surrendering to the Japanese at the siege of Singapore. He was sent to a POW camp, where he was forced to build the notorious "railway of death" on the River Kwai. Johnny kept spirits up with tales of his footballing past, even organising matches until they became too weak. Many years after Johnny's death, his grandson Michael discovered an old manuscript hidden in the attic of his mother's house. It was Johnny's own account of his wartime experiences. In the tradition of bestselling memoirs like The Railway Man, Lucky Johnny is an inspirational tale of survival against the odds.
