Edward Sniders is not the only prisoner of war to have received counsel and encouragement from C. S. Lewis during World War II. In fact, Lewis found three different ways to support various British prisoners in their time of extreme need. He did this through supervising the selection of religious books sent to POW camp libraries, developing with J. R. R. Tolkien an English Literature study course and examination for POWs, and writing to individual prisoners. The present article will explore each of these three efforts.
