dc.description.abstractThe First World War is not particularly renowned for the mistreatment of prisoners. Violence against prisoners of war has received little scholarly attention and the history of the prisoner experience has been neglected in Britain, France and Germany. This thesis looks at how violence against prisoners of war evolved, contending that the First World War marked a seminal and overlooked phase in the history of prisoner treatment in the twentieth century. The central hypothesis of this study is that during the war the protected status of the prisoner of war in international law was utterly undermined, leading to such serious abuse of prisoners that in 1929 the Third Geneva Convention on prisoners of war was perceived as necessary. How violence against prisoners emerged, evolved and how it was remembered in the interwar period are studied in this thesis for the first time.
