In 1942 the young soldier Arthur Dodd was taken prisoner by the German Army and transported to Auschwitz, joining hundreds of British POWs. While there, he sabotaged Nazi industrial work, risked his life to alleviate the suffering of the Jewish prisoners, and aided a group planning a mass breakout. This important historical account includes material regarding the German businesses that operated at Auschwitz and the British government's failure to care adequately for the POWs who returned.
