Prsioners of the Kaiser

Published in 2000 - still available. Based on interviews with ex British POWS alive in 1999. Much background info, many POW photographs, 206 pages, retails £16.95

well recommended if you want to know about British POWS and the conditions that they were held in (Note as all veterans interviewed were o/rs, it centres very much on o/r camps, work Kommandos, etc)

Buy it!

Can any one help me with other recommendations for other books on British POWS

WA Tucker's The Lousier War might be of interest. Well written memoir, about half of which is as a PoW, mainly at Roubaix. Lots of high jinks including escape attempts. New English Library, London, 1974, so well out of print but as a mass market paperback not too pricey to pick up.

There is also a good PoW escape memoir, whose title escapes me but something like "The First Great Escape".
