The German Prisoner, Paperback / softback Book

The German Prisoner Paperback / softback


Brilliant in its stark depiction of trench warfare in World War I, this lost classic was privately printed in a limited edition in 1930.

British censors initially suppressed the short novel because of itstough antiwar viewsand sympathetic portrayals of German soldiers, and eventoday's readers may be unprepared for itsscenes of horrific battlefield carnageand men driven to madness byrelentless psychological stress.

Providing a new view of an underappreciated Canadian author, the book also stands as a fascinating addition to the comparatively small shelf ofliterature by writers who fought in the Great War."
