Hitlers Didder Slaves tells of the 'Benghazi Handicap' in North Africa, which resulted in the capture of some 200 Australian plus Allied troops 10 1941. The Author served with the 2/3 LAA Regiment and also became a prisoner. The Australian prisoners were rebellious and gained a reputation as troublemakers, in consequence they were cruelly ill-treated. With the German take over of the POW's the mistreatment worsened. This is the dark side of life as a POW with treatment more in line with concentration camps than the usual prison camps.
