For those wishing to know: the book covers the world's first purpose-built 
prisoner of war camp at Norman Cross, just a few miles south of 
Peterborough.  Whilst being a very readable book, it is also the only 
major study done of Norman Cross, and brings all sorts of materials 
together.  Thomas Walker was a local antiquarian and was able to interview 
some of the old people who still remembered the site.  Today it's just 
green fields and a plaque.

All the best,
Very hot and sunny England, although I'm told it will be cold and rainy
