A story of the romance between an English girl and a German prisoner-of-war in an Isle of Man internment camp during World War I. It was the basis for the 1927 film Barbed Wire directed by Rowland V. Lee. But it is more than a love story. It is a Parable, carrying an unmistakable message, an ostensible argument, that is directed against War as the first author of the racial hatred, the material ruin, the sorrow and suffering, the poverty and want, which are now threatening the world with destruction; that it is a plea for universal peace, for speedy and universal disarmament, as the only alternative to universal anarchy. Sir Thomas Henry Hall Caine (1853-1931) was a friend of Rossetti and wrote many successful novels largely set on the Isle of Man.

During the First World War hundreds of thousands of Germans faced incarceration in hundreds of camps on the British mainland. This is the first book on these German prisoners, almost a century after the conflict. The book covers the three different types of internees in Britain in the form of: civilians already present in the country in August 1914; civilians brought to Britain from all over the world; and combatants. Using a vast range of contemporary British and German sources the volume traces life experiences through initial arrest and capture to life behind barbed wire to return to Germany or to the remnants of the ethnically cleansed German community in Britain. The book will prove essential reading for anyone interested in the history of prisoners of war or the First World War and will also appeal to scholars and students of twentieth-century Europe and the human consequences of war.
