Jean Overton Fuller is well-renowned for her most important and best-selling book, Madeleine, as well as other well-researched writings on events of the Second World War. In Conversations with a Captor, the author follows Madeleine by outlining conversations she had with an SS Officer known by his code-name ‘Ernest’ whom was responsible for interviewing ‘Madeleine’ after her capture in Paris as a British intelligence wireless operator. She outlines the conversations through a series of readable prose-poems making it a unique and captivating human document hardly seen in war literature.
