Chas tells of the treatments of prisoners by Germans vs. Italians, of tensions among prisoners, of the kind of work the men did and the kind of food they ate. Some of the stories are humorous, filled with the small joys. Others are tense and frightening: getting into a fist fight with a guard, being discovered in an escape attempt, standing before a firing squad.
