During the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), management and treatment of prisoners of war (POWs) was very different from the standards of modern warfare. Modern standards, as outlined in the Geneva Conventions of later centuries, assume that captives will be held and cared for by their captors. One primary difference in the 18th century was that care and supplies for captives were expected to be provided by their own combatants or private resources.

All Prisoners Of War Books. I found this book to be very insightful; a unique story with a poignant conclusion as after the war Michael went back to Italy and married the daughter of the family that had hidden him for many months. The photographs included in this publication make it all the more interesting because they were taken from the Ross family archive, and this somehow makes them all the more interesting.

Acclaim for Steve Yarbrough’s. This writer, author of the stunning book Visible Spirits, gets as much mileage from his little patch of Mississippi as Thoreau did from Walden. Prisoners of War. Yarbrough. is a sophisticated, gentle writer with a gift for subtlety. The latent heat of a Delta autumn wafts through his Southern memories.

Well written with lots of photographs, this book provides a good overview of how prisoners of war from all sides were housed and treated during World War II. Particularly helpful are the side-bar human interest stories and insights on the reactions of prisoners to their circumstances. Many readers may not know of the role of German and Italian prisoners working in small towns, camps and on farms throughout the United States. Or, that many thousands of Russian soldiers taken prisoner by the Germans were executed by the Russians upon their return. Of particular interest are the many accounts of specific events, such as the execution of many thousands of Polish officers by Russian troops in the Katyn Forest about 10 miles west of Smolensk.

The sheer number of pictures included is impressive. They give a visual dimension to the stories that make this a classic work. However, readers are cautioned that some of the photographs are graphic and may not be appropriate for pre-middle school readers.

Highly recommended for high school, college and public library collections supporting research papers and other research on the topic of World War II prisoners-of-war.

This book was shipped to me by mistake; I was reading many of the Time-Life series but this was not on my list. I read it anyway and was fascinated by the stories. Rather than depressing as I feared, it turned out to be a great read with good photos and art.
Ok!!
