Much of what has been written about the treatment of prisoners of war held by the British in various conflicts point to the belief that they have often been treated in a more caring and compassionate way than the prisoners of other countries. This was seen as especially true in the First World War as to how British prisoners were treated. This would seem to point out that Germans held in Britain were treated leniently while there were claims of British prisoners being mistreated by the Germans. Was the British sense of fair play present in the prison camps and did this sense of fair play include the press and public who often called for harsher treatment of the Germans in captivity. Were those seen as enemy aliens living in Britain given similar fair treatment? Were they sent to internment camps because they were a threat to the country or for their own protection to save them from the British public intent on inflicting violence on them. This book will examine the truth of these views while also looking at the number of camps set up in the country and the public and press perception of the men held here.

About the Author:

Since leaving teaching to become a carer for his disabled grandsons, Michael Foley has been concentrating on writing. After having a number of articles and short stories published in a variety of magazines such as best of British and This England and Essex Life he wrote his first book ‘Front Line Essex’. His early books were mainly local titles covering Essex and London with a military basis. He has recently concentrated on more general military titles which mainly centre on the First World War. This is his 24th book.
