During the Second World War some 250,000 British servicemen were taken captive by either the Axis powers or the Japanese. As a result, their wives and families became completely dependent on the military and civil authorities for news of their loved ones and for financial and material support. This book outlines the nature of their plight and shows how they attempted to overcome the particular difficulties they faced during and immediately after the war.
