Summary
On capture, British officers and men were routinely told by the Germans 'for you the war is over', but this couldn't be further from the truth. The British soldiers taken prisoner in 1914-18 - about 12% of the entire army - merely exchanged one barbed-wire battlefield for another. And it was in the Kaiser's camps, far from the blasted trenches of the 'official' war, that the fighting spirit of the British Tommy was exemplified
