About this book
The true story of 4 Prisoners of War at a German camp during WWII, who passed their days watching birds and founded a secret ornithology society. Through their shared love of birds, John Buxton, Peter Conder and 2 others overcame hunger, hardship, fear and boredom. Officially endorsed by the RSPB, it includes a wealth of archive material.
This is the inspiring true story of how a passion for birds enabled four young men to escape the horror of internment in a German PoW camp - and brought about an extraordinary moment of cooperation and mutual understanding between them and their captors.
