A War Time Log by John Davies Jones

Shot down in September 1944, John Davies Jones spent the next eight months as a Prisoner Of War in Germany. This compelling narrative, edited by his daughter, recounts not only the camaraderie between the POWs but also highlights the cold and hunger of that bitter winter which culminated in the Long March as the Russians approached. Fantasies and recipes for meals once he was back home are interspersed with tales of the daily boredom of the camp, alongside highlights of the entertainment and visitors they experienced. Never sure where their next meal was coming from or when or if liberation would happen, John’s character shines through the highs and the lows of an unforgettable time.
