During the early years of World War II, the author--a German Jew from a privileged background--was suddenly catapulted from his idyllic student elite life at Cambridge into a turbulent seven-year odyssey in an internment camp. This acerbically witty memoir follows the "Cambridge Gang" of internees as they exchange privilege for privation and become part of the war effort.
