This project has its origins on my cooperation with colleagues at Stanford University and University of Tartu, interested in the war experiences of Estonian servicemen in 20th century wars. I am particularly interested in the more unusual experiences of POWs and deserters, who, cut of from the more 'normal' frontline experiences of their comrades, found themselves in very different circumstances of hardship. I have this far published two articles (one on deserters, one on POWs) and presented a few conference papers. I am actively working on one further article concerning print propaganda in Estonian that the POWs were subjected to in German prison camps in 1918.
