Description

Colour Plates, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

This work was written by one hundred and seventy-nine inmates of the camp, and comprises a series of anecdotes and events which occurred at the camp.

Oflag IVC was a German prisoner-of-war camp used to hold captured enemy officers during the Second World War. Situated at Colditz Castle, the first prisoners arrived in November of 1939, and later notable inmates included Douglas Bader, Charles Upham, Airey Neave, the Lord Haig, Lord Lascelles, John Elphinstone and Giles Romilly.

With a number of colour portraits, as well as other full plate illustrations and photographs throughout.

Condition

In the publisher's original full cloth binding. Externally generally smart, with some rubbing to the extremities and a chip to the head of the spine. A newspaper clipping regarding the work stuck to the front pastedown. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are a touch age-toned in places, but otherwise bright and clean.
