Around 1,000 British servicemen were held as PoWs by the Chinese and North Koreans during the Korean War. In prison camps along the Yalu River they faced what Mackenzie describes as 'a unique and prolonged test of mind, character and body; grappling with an intensive and sustained effort by the enemy to change their allegiance'. Drawing on recently released materials, this study explores in detail the experience of the PoWs, their treatment by their captors and their reaction to indoctrination.
