Comments: Barbed Wire and Bamboo is a collection of stories of captivity and escape involving Australian soldiers during World War Two. 

The experience of Australian prisoners of the Germans and Italians has been largely overlooked until now – Burgess records previously untold stories from the European and Mediterranean theatres while Clarke details the horror of life for 22,000 Australians taken by the Japanese.
