Lieutenant Edouard V.M. Isaacs, USN (right)
Halftone reproduction of a photograph, published as the frontispiece of his 1919 book "Prisoner of the U-90".
The view shows Lt. Isaacs at the Villingen, Germany, prisoner of war camp with other members of his mess, circa late July or early August 1918. He had sent the photograph to his home on 13 August. Also present are two British officers, Jeffrey and Hardesty, and sub-lieutenant Willis, an American who had been captured circa mid-1917, while serving with the French air force's Lafayette Escadrille. Willis and Isaacs escaped from Villingen in October 1918 and together made their way to Switzerland.
