"Although it refers to several existing studies, Heather Jones's book, based upon a wide array of sources, goes far beyond them. [...] Overall, this study makes an important contribution on a long overlooked theme: the comparative approach reveals new perspectives." -Michael Epkenhans, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
"...an important contribution for all students of WWI. Highly recommended." -Choice
"Thanks to its impressive scope, the book promises to become a necessary read for students of the war and a go-to book on POWs more broadly speaking. For scholars of World War I, Jones's study will be critical for her contributions to the contextualization of wartime violence." -Heather Jones, Journal of British Studies
"Violence against Prisoners of War in the First World War is an important work that explores the dynamic relationships that drove Britain, France, and especially Germany to adopt increasingly harsh methods in dealing with military prisoners. It also sheds light on the broader question of to what degree "total" war characterized the prisoner experience." -American Historical Review
This groundbreaking study provides the first in-depth examination of violence against First World War prisoners. It shows how the war radicalised captivity treatment in Britain, France and Germany and dramatically undermined international humanitarian law, and reveals how prisoners were often retained to labour directly for the armies of their captors.
