Exclusive interviews will reveal the inside story of the Thai cave rescue

The upcoming publication of The Cave will reveal previously unknown aspects of the Thai cave rescue, based on exclusive interviews with several of the rescued boys and their families, as well as with British diver John Volanthen. 

Author Liam Cochrane has gained unrivalled access to some of the key players in the dramatic rescue, with help from a team of Thai researchers.

‘Getting to hear about the boys’ experiences inside the cave and get their story in their own words has really made this book something special,’ said Liam Cochrane. 

‘Many aspects of the rescue were unclear until I spent seven hours interviewing John Volanthen, one of the true heroes of the operation,’ he said. 

The ABC’s Southeast Asia correspondent was on the scene during the search and rescue mission, but most of the material for the book has been drawn from fresh research with more than twenty-five key sources involved. 

The Cave will reveal aspects of the operation that have never been publicly disclosed, as well as the personal experiences of those who risked their lives to save the soccer team. 

Publisher Mary Rennie says, ‘We are excited and proud to be publishing The Cave. It is a thrilling, poignant and compelling account of the most dramatic rescue of recent history, full of information about the diving rescue and other operations, with surprising stories from a diverse cast of players on the ground. Liam has proved himself a fabulous story-teller and insightful journalist.” 

The book is at the printers and is expected to be on the shelves in early December.
