Albert Rhys Williams was an American journalist and author. In 1914, Williams traveled to Europe as the special war correspondent for Outlook magazine, tasked with the duty of reporting the events of the Great War.

In these early days of the conflict, Williams had the misfortune to fall into the hands of the Imperial German Army. He was arrested in Belgium and marched into captivity on the suspicion that he was a British spy.

On his return to the United States, Williams published In the Claws of the German Eagle in 1917. This fascinating book details Williams’ experiences both on the front and in German captivity and provides a rare opportunity to discover the events as they unfolded behind the German lines.
