About the Author

Arthur Charles Evans CBE (21 March 1916 - 18 March 2011) is the author of Sojourn in Silesia: 1940 - 1945, in which he recounts his experiences of his time in World War II, between 1940 and 1945, in the prisoner-of-war camp, Stalag VIIIB. Thousands of young men were incarcerated in Stalag VIIIB, in Lamsdorf, by the Germans during World War II. Arthur recounted these experiences both in his book, as well as on his website, Lamsdorf Remembered. The website was created due to public response from the children and grandchildren of former inmates of Stalag VIIIB, the website originally named Lamsdorf Reunited was created to record stories and photographs from that experience. Arthur encountered the respected RAF pilot Douglas Bader while at Stalag VIIIB, and talked about his escape attempts in his book. Arthur himself is mentioned in a book called POW: Allied Prisoners in Europe, 1939-1945 by Adrian Gilbert who used Sojourn in Silesia for his information. Arthur was a member of The National Ex-Prisoner of War Association, whose patron is Dame Vera Lynn, DBE, LLD, M.MUS, and is mentioned in the August 2001 newsletter. On his website Lamsdorf Remembered, a half-hour Radio Kent interview with Arthur was published, as well as a blog called Letters from Stalag VIIIB, which is made up of Evans' letters home during his four years as a prisoner-of-war, which has now been published as a book and is available on Amazon.
