On the outbreak of war in August 1914 Britain interned civilian "enemy aliens" including thousands of men of military age with Germanic surnames. Amongst these were members of the National Sailors' and Fireman's Union working on British merchant vessels. The NSFU offered to accomodate these men at Pattishall in Northamptonshire. As the war progressed, combatant Prisoners of War, captured by British troops in mainland Europe were brought to POW camps opened in Britain to minimise their chances of escaping and re-joining the armies of Germany and her allies. In October 1915 the NSFU handed over to the British Government its facilities ta Pattishall which were developed to hold many thousand German, Austrian, Bulgarian and Turkish POW's over the following four years. In this book Colin Chapman and Richard Moss tell the amazing story of the First World War POW camp set in rural Northamptonshire in the heart of England.
