Peter Monteath

Australian prisoners of war in Hitler's Third Reich.

Australians from every branch of our armed forces found themselves captives in Hitler's notorious prisoner of war camps. Most were forced to labour in factories, down mines or on the land - often in conditions of enormous privation and hardship. All suffered from shortages, overcrowding, and the mental strain of imprisonment.

Peter Monteath's fascinating narrative history of these prisoners of war is exhaustively researched. Their stories of courage, stoicism, suffering and endurance make for compelling reading.
