About the event

Dr Clare Makepeace explores the experiences and emotions of British prisoners of war. Following the publication of her pioneering history Captives of War, British Prisoners of War in Europe in the Second World War, Clare Makepeace tells the story of wartime imprisonment through the love, fears, fantasies, loneliness, frustration and guilt felt by these men. Drawing upon their diaries, letters and scrapbooks, she will shed new light upon how prisoners coped and came to terms with spending a war behind barbed wire.
