Boulle's idea for the book is certainly intriguing, but until the last few pages, it lacks drama

I liked it, but man 'o man, it annoyed me. A product of it's times (written in 1954), Kwai is both stereotypical and stiff in the telling of a 1942, WWII, Pacific Theatre event. Boulle's idea for the book is certainly intriguing, but until the last few pages, it lacks drama. They're referred to as children, savages, incompetent at every turn, incapable of accomplishing the feats of construction that the British can, or of running a well-organized camp; the Japanese commander, Saito, is repeatedly said to be 'shamed' by Colonel Nicholson's behavior, and to lash out in petty vengeance for it - there's no nuance to this portrayal.

Pierre Boulle (20 February 1912 – 30 January 1994) was a French novelist best known for two works, The Bridge over the River Kwai (1952) and Planet of the Apes (1963), that were both made into award-winning films. Boulle was an engineer serving as a secret agent with the Free French in Singapore, when he was captured and subjected to two years' forced labour. He used these experiences in The Bridge over the River Kwai, about the notorious Death Railway, which became an international bestseller

Pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, au cœur de la jungle thaïlandaise .

Pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, au cœur de la jungle thaïlandaise, les Japonais ont mis au travail des milliers de prisonniers anglais pour construire la voir ferrée Bangkok-Rangoon. Vivant symbole de la tradition britannique, le colonel Nicholson oppose aux injonctions et aux sévices de ses geôliers une résistance stoïque, jusqu'au jour ou ceux-ci consentent à respecter les conventions internationales sur les prisonniers de guerre.

It seems that this book presents a realistic view of what happened at the river Kwai . It is interesting to compare with the film. Obviously the film maker thought that more action was necessary. Which is not always the care.
Fast is that the bridge was subject to sabotage several times but was not destroyed until spring-45 when it was bombed.
