Silent Battle
Prisoners of War in Germany 1914-1919

Morton, Desmond
Publisher:  Lester Publishing
Pages:  232pp   ISBN:  1-895555-17-5
Professor Morton's book fills an important gap in Canadian military history. With painstaking research he chronicles how the prisoners were largely forgotten at home, the myth of the noble soldier dying rather than surrendering and why their treatment by the Germans was so harsh. The story of Canadian POWs up until now largely ignored has been explored in great and original depth.
