|Summary, etc.:|| Billy Williams came to Burma in 1920 fresh from service in World War I, as a "forest man" for a British teak company. Mesmerized by the intelligence, character, and even humor of the great animals who hauled logs through the jungles, he became a gifted "elephant wallah." When the Japanese invaded in 1942, Williams joined Force 136, the British dirty tricks department. His war elephants carried supplies, built bridges, and transported the sick and elderly. And when a price was put on his head, they set out on a Hollywood-worthy escape.
