POW cover picturePOW: Diary of a Prisoner of War
David Nell


David Nell was taken prisoner in North Africa on 28 June 1942. Although he was almost illiterate until his teens, he was keen to learn, and read widely to achieve it. Later, as a prisoner of war, he used this diary to continue this process. He kept the diary throughout his prison-camp life, until his eventual release in April 1945. This fascinating account gives a superb insight into the life of a prisoner in the Second World War.
