The Bridge On the River Kwai
Pierre Boulle was a French novelist best known for two works, The Bridge over the River Kwai (1952) and Planet of the Apes (1963). The Bridge over the River Kwai became an international bestseller and deals with the plight of World War II British prisoners of war that were forced to build a bridge to aid the war effort for their Japanese captors. Boulle's science-fiction novel Planet of the Apes tells the tale in which humans are savage beasts, and apes rule as their civilized masters. Both novels were made into award-winning films.
