The untold story of life in the allied camps under the


Nazi's.


Sean Londgen has conducted numerous interviews and


reveals a new perspective on life under the Nazis that has


long been forgotten and replaced by the myth of Colditz


and The Great Escape.


Between 1939 and 1945 almost 200,000 British and


Commonwealth Servicemen were held as Prisoners of War


in Germany. Every Allied soldier under the rank of Sergeant


was forced to work 12 hour shifts, six days a week, cutting


timber, quarrying stone, carving ice from frozen rivers and


clearing bombsites. It drove the soldiers to the brink, in


which survival was a daily trial. Many starved to death or


died from disease, others were killed in accidents or at the


hands of their guards.

Review:

A meticulously-researched, utterly absorbing account -- Yorkshire Post

A powerful indictment of the crimes perpetrated against men who
had surrendered in good faith...Never agian, after Mr Longden's excellent
work, shall we see the plight of the POWs as anything other than
unremittingly monstrous -- Daily Mail, Andrew Roberts

A slave is someone who is made to wrok under thereat to his life.
He isn't paid. He is at the will of his masters. It was the same for us. We
were given a bowl of soup and some bread made from sawdust. If you didn't
do as you were told you were shot.
-- Leslie Allen
