Product description

Review


"A meticulously observed description of the lives of French POWs as virtual slaves of the Third Reich, with vivid delineations of both captors and captives." --The Wall Street Journal

Product Description

A French painter-turned-soldier’s memoir of a Nazi prisoner-of-war camp and “one of the most sensational escapes from the Nazis in World War II” (Time).
 
French painter Jean Hélion was friends with the likes of Mondrian, Giacometti, and Balthus, and had a role in shaping the path of modern art. But when Hélion’s infantry platoon was captured by the German army and sent to hard labor, Hélion was forced to live without his art. They Shall Not Have Me is Hélion’s account of the prisoner-of-war camp: the sights, sounds, smells, the captors, and the captured. After almost two years, Hélion succeeded in a daring escape to freedom.
 
According to American poet John Ashbery, Hélion’s “account of his adventures in captivity is both terrifying and funny, somewhat in the vein of Tarantino’s film Inglorious Basterds. A best-seller after it was published in America while the war was still raging, it has remained for many, including Helion’s legions of admirers in both France and the United States, a one-of-a-kind classic.”
