Between 2010 and 2012 Karen Horn tracked down and interviewed several South Africans who were prisoners of war during World War II.

"Drawing on vivid oral reminiscences as well as documentary sources, 'In Enemy Hands' is impressively lucid, deeply humane, and packed with shrewd insights. Dr Horn's major study is a superb achievement in bringing a trapped and chafing part of South Africa's Second World War generation out of the shadows." Bill Nasson, author of "South War at War", "Springboks on the Somme" and "WWI, and the people of South Africa"

Historian Karen Horn is a lecturer at Stellenbosch University.
