Australian Geographic - - The List -

IL­LUS­TRATED WITH never-be­for­e­seen pho­to­graphs and sketches, Cap­tured Lives pro­vides an in­sider’s look into life in the in­tern­ment and pris­oner-of-war camps that were spread across Aus­tralia dur­ing the two world wars. The book ex­plores the POWs’ sto­ries, and the ways they re­lieved their dis­com­fort (phys­i­cal and men­tal) and their bore­dom through creative pur­suits, sports and gar­den­ing.
