Synopsis

Prisoner of War by Stewart Ross

This book makes for a fascinating read, consisting of the stories of five prisoners of war from World War II. Together with an explanation of why some soldiers and airmen became prisoners of war, the book describes everyday life in the prison camps around the world (poor food, roll calls, manual labor, entertainment) and explains how some prisoners made daring escapes, whilst others had no choice but to wait for liberation from the Allied forces. It provides an intriguing look at the way of life experienced by real people in wartime Britain. It is complete with color and previously unpublished black and white photographs, a glossary and an index.

Reviews

This series is a refreshingly different approach among the huge number of texts on the market covering the Second World War. -- TES

About the Author

Stewart Ross

After several years teaching at a variety of institutions in Britain, the USA, the Middle East and Sri Lanka, Stewart Ross became a full-time writer eleven years ago. With over 175 published titles to his credit, in a remarkably short time he has become one of Britain’s most popular and versatile authors.

Current projects include a third adult novel, five volumes in Hodder's Survivors series of children's historical fiction, more volumes in their Stories From History for young children, several other historical stories and works of non-fiction, a Jubilee revue, and a musical with Paul Englishby (musical director of Captain Corelli's Mandolin'). A frequent lecturer, notably on the QE2, and occasional journalist and broadcaster, Stewart lives near Canterbury with his wife and four children. Each morning escapes domestic hubbub by commuting ten metres to work in a large hut in the garden.
