Reinhard Nachtigal addresses the fate of the nearly 7 million prisoners of war in Russia, Germany, and Austria-Hungary and the challenges they both encountered and created in the early phase of the First World War. Among the issues discussed in this comparative analysis of prisoner of war camps are the different treatment prisoners were accorded based on nationality or ethnicity, the incidence of epidemics, housing shortages for inmates, enemy combatants used as a workforce for the custodial country, and abuse of prisoners.

Keywords:   nationality policy, prisoner of war camps, World War I eastern front, The Hague Land Warfare Convention, wartime epidemics
