Buried in the history of our most famous jail, a unique story of captivity, violence and race.

It's 1812 Britain and America are at war. British redcoats torch the White House and six thousand American sailors languish in the world's largest prisoner-of-war camp, Dartmoor. A myriad of races and backgrounds, some are as young as thirteen.

Known as the ';hated cage', Dartmoor was designed to break its inmates, body and spirit. Yet, somehow, life continued to flourish behind its tall granite walls. Prisoners taught each other foreign languages and science, put on plays and staged boxing matches. In daring efforts to escape they lived every prison-break clich how to hide the tunnel entrances, what to do with the earth, which disguises might pass

Drawing on meticulous research, The Hated Cage documents the extraordinary communities these men built within the prison and the terrible massacre that destroyed these worlds.

';This is history as it ought to be gripping, dynamic, vividly written.' Marcus Rediker
