Life in a prison camp... has never been described in such detail & with such power." -publisher's jacket blurb. Falls (awarding a star) adds: "a novel of literary skill, humour & charm... The officers... are extraordinary figures of fun; in elsticity, knowledge of their profession, & general intelligence, they would be beaten by British officers of our blackest age. The humour, however, is grim at times, & there are some terrible passages enough, even though they do not concern the battlefields." Nice copy in sl. chipped/worn dw & rare thus.
