Stalag Viiib, Colditz, these names are synonymous with prisoners of war in World War Ii. But what of those caught on British soil? Where did they go? Gloucestershire was home to a wealth of Pow camps and hostels, and many Italian and German prisoners spent the war years here. This book explores the role of the camps and their prisoners and workers, together with their impact on the local community. This book draws on Ministry of Defence, Red Cross, and Us Army records, and is richly illustrated with original images. It also features the firsthand account of Joachim Schulze, a German Pow who spent the war near Tewksbury. This is a fascinating but forgotten aspect of World War Ii.
