What Churchill called the 'melancholy state' of a prisoner of war was not unique to the 20th century. Since human beings first took up arms against one another, combatants had captured enemies. Never before, however, had so many prisoners of war been confined in so many places around the world as in World War II.

This book came to my attention after listening to a discussion regarding the present state of
law, in regards to the Geneva Convention and such. This is but one of the titles of Time Life's large series regarding World War 2.

This title has gotten special recognition as to it's accuracy, and overall attempt to cover all of the belligerent/warring parties prisoner experiences.

An excellent read with plenty of the photos that Life is famous for....
