In 1915, the German government published a book entitled ‘1915’ in an attempt to portray the Germans as a civilised people who were destined to win the war, who would treat their prisoners with care and compassion. The Kaiser’s First POWs is the first book to compare the ‘official’ German view to the grim reality of captivity, as experienced by the prisoners.

Dozens of original photos from ‘1915’ tell the story as seen by German eyes. Compare them to the personal accounts from former prisoners who describe the reality of falling into the hands of the German Army and life as a prisoner of the Kaiser.

By the end of the war, the Germans had taken approximately 2.8 million prisoners of war. This books describes the life and times of these prisoners and the manner in which the Germans dealt with the problems involved in accommodating them.
