Description
Information
Stalag VIII-B, Colditz, these names are synonymous with Prisoners of War in the Second World War. 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, 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 first-hand account of Joachim Schulze, a German PoW who spent the war near Tewkesbury. This is a fascinating but forgotten aspect of the Second World War.
