£3.99

Available in Stock

While books about prisoners-of-war usually focus on daring escapes, this one is about the men who not only survived incarceration, but turned the experience to their advantage. It describes how, as well as setting up universities to study subjects ranging from French and German to pig-farming, prisoners kept busy and stayed optimistic through performing as actors or musicians; playing sports; and becoming makeshift doctors, cooks, birdwatchers or gardeners.
