Crossing the Wire Australian POW WW1


Crossing the Wire The untold stories of Australian POWs in battle and captivity during WWI by D. Coombes

In Brisbane Stock

Crossing the Wire is a fitting tribute to the World War 1 Australian soldiers and POWs.

David Coombes highlights the ordeals these men went through, their stoicism in enduring their mistreatment, and the fearlessness of a few in launching ingenious attempts to escape. 

This book would be of immense interest to any one who has had a relative imprisoned on the Western Front during World War I. It provides excellent accounts of the life and times of Australians being imprisoned by the Germans.

Special attention has been given to the battles of Gallipoli, Stormy Trench and 1st Battle of Bullecourt.
