What our customers say...

"Excellent service, communication and delivery"

"Easy to use and always find what I want"


Penguin, 1997. 754 pages including index. Many photographs. "Soft" cover corners, otherwise excellent condition. Patsy Adam-Smith uses dozens of interviews in this provocative book to repaint the image to show the strength and courage of Australians taken prisoner in World War I, World War II and the Korean War. "She was a storyteller," said the principal historian at the Australian War Memorial, Peter Stanley. "She would find records, read diaries, talk to people and then spin the stories that introduced readers to Australian history," Dr Stanley said. He said that among Adam-Smith's 28 books, three stood out: The Anzacs, published in 1978, Australian Women at War (1984), and Prisoners of War (1992). They remained important references for military historians. Adam-Smith wrote for a wide audience, and as a keen amateur photographer she chose pictures for her books that gave life and atmosphere to the research. "She chronicled the heroism in Australian life," said the manager of the Literature Board of the Australia Council, Gail Cork. Prisoners of War won the triennial Order of Australia Association Book Prize in 1993, with Professor Geoffrey Blainey saying that it was written with clarity, vivacity and compassion. "No book has previously been written on this wide theme, partly because of the immensity of the task," Professor Blainey said. . Mass Market Paperback. Good - Very Good.
