Description In 1940, when Nazi forces were poised across the English Channel to strike at England, the British government panicked, interned "enemy" aliens - including many who has fled Hitler's grasp - and shipped them off to Canada. This country expected dangerous prisoners-of-war but instead found many students, rabbis, and priests and other innocent refugees. Eric Koch, himself a former internee, offers a vivid account of life in the camps and the struggles inside and out to gain freedom for the prisoners. One map, 14 pages of B&W illustrations. Small bump to spine head; jacket has edge wrinkling to top of spine panel.
