Originally published as Prisoners of War by Penguin Books Australia in 1992.
Summary Patsy Adam-Smith wrote this classic work after interviews and journeys with dozens of former prisoners from World War I, World War II and the Korean War. She said these were not men and women cowed and humiliated by adversity, but brave people who were captured as they fought in the front line. Stories of the courage, endurance and pain of these resourceful people are at the heart of this most important book, written by one of Australia's best-loved authors and republished for the people for whom Patsy wrote - the generations to come. Australian Prisoners of War is a tribute to ordinary Australian men and women caught in extraordinary times.
