Description

Turkish officials confiscated diaries and records maintained by Allied prisoners during the war, especially since conditions were often brutal. An Australian officer maintained a diary of his experiences and kept it hidden from Turkish soldiers by hiding his notes between the soles of his hob-nailed boots to avoid detection. These notes became the basis for a book regarding his treatment by the Turks during his captivity in Afion Karahissar.
