xx+maps+520pp+illus. By June 1944, hundreds of thousands of British and American soldiers and airmen were prisoners of war in camps across Nazi Germany. The war was reaching its endgame and on the Eastern front the Red Army was advancing, the front line moving through Poland towards the border with Germany. In the West American and British troops were storming the beaches of northern France. News of the D-Day landings filled the prisoners with hope but their captors reacted to the threat by marching them through the depths of winter further into the heart of Germany, away from their would-be liberators. Many died from exhaustion, disease and starvation and those who survived were awed by the experience for ever. The authors interviewed many veterans and tell the story of their astonishing courage and endurance. Bibliography and Index.
