Tsingtau-Japanese Prisoner Of War Camp 1914

Post by omaha » 06 Apr 2003 07:20

When the Germans were defeated by the combined British and Japanese forces in 1914,prisoners were shipped off to Japan.
Does anyone have any information with regard to locality of camp or camps? are there any books or articles available in English concerning this period.

Glad you liked the links. Sorry I don't have much contact with the Militaria communtity here. As for South Africa, I'm interested in German Colonial campaigns (see my website at http://www.sacktrick.com/igu/germancolonialuniforms ) so if you come across anything relating to the conquest of German South West Africa that'd be handy!
Cheers
