This paper aims to shift the perspective by looking at the neglected itineraries and readings of an estimated 16,000 British prisoners of war in Napoleonic France and Mauritius. Drawing on inventories of the Franco-British library established by British captives in Verdun, along with various ego-documents kept by the prison...
