Being captured as a prisoner of war ranks as one of the most frightening experiences a soldier can face. The immediate fear of the unknown, the threat of death, or at best a severe beating, will affect your emotions. At the very nature of your predicament, your mind will be filled with a sense of isolation and abandonment.
Upon capture, the POW must be prepared to encounter some hostility. The amount of hostility will be directly related to several factors: which side is winning the conflict and the amount of alleged atrocities carried out by friendly forces. Never forget that a bombing mission may have inadvertently killed innocent civilians. This crime will still be attributed to the POW. In the eyes of his captors, the POW is the enemy personified, and responsible for all the deeds carried out by his own forces.
The SAS Guide to Escape, Evasion, and Survival is filled with every aspect of POW conditions. It will explain how to look for escape opportunities, how to plan, and when to make your bid for freedom. Once free, the manual describes in detail how to stay free, live off the land, and return home safely. All in all, you will recognize that there is always something that can be done to improve the POW?s situation; never give up hope. 100 color photographs« less
