About this title


In the course of researching some of his earlier books, Michael Foley frequently came across information about prisoners of war in various conflicts. Much of what was written conveyed the idea that the British were always kinder to POWs than their foreign counterparts. He began to question this simplistic view after reading about the concentration camps used by the British during the Boer War, and was further surprised to learn that German prisoners were held in Britain until 1947-two years after the end of the Second World War. His new book uncovers the truth about the treatment of prisoners of war by the British, from the earliest conflicts up to the recent wars in the Middle East. Bringing together a wealth of historical detail with numerous personal stories, it may shake the beliefs of those who think of the British as always fair. But the book is fair and, in an honest and balanced way, finally gives a true picture of the lives of Prisoners of the British.

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.
