254. Prisoners of the Empire

Author Sarah Kovner joins Al Murray and James Holland to discuss the treatment of Allied Prisoners of War in the Far East. Listeners may be surprised to hear how confusion and ignorance more than an intentionally brutal policy contributed to the suffering of the men.


Sarah Kovner is Senior Research Scholar at the Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies at Columbia University
