Drawing on unpublished and published documentary sources, memoirs, interviews, autobiographies, newspapers, magazines, journals, and other secondary sources, Zimmermann recounts the story of CanadaAEs largest civilian internment camp at Red Rock, Northwestern Ontario. Open from July 1940 to October 1941, Camp R housed internal civilian enemy aliens sent from Britain. He explores what brought 1150 inmates together and the multiple facets of incarceration and the conditions of camp life. He discusses the issues of administration and guarding of prisoners, as well as the volatile domestic Canadian context that the foreign internees were injected into.
