'This is the story of Prisoner of War No. 481, Roger Mortimer, Coldstream Guards. Based on a selection of his wartime letters home and recollections from some of the lifelong friends he made in five different prison camps, this is an account of the resilience, resourcefulness and humour that enabled them all to cope with the frustration, dreariness and discomfort of long-term imprisonment. Roger was a POW for five years. To have been a prisoner of War was not 'to have had a good war', but to have had a bad war which required any number of good qualities to endure it. Born in 1909, educated at Eton and Sandhurst, Roger Mortimer left the army in 1947 and became a well known as a racing correspondent, Historian and Broadcaster. He was still writing, up until the time his death in 1991.'
Overall in very good condition, can't see any signs of wear/damage.
