James Bacque is a writer, editor and one-time publisher. Educated at Upper Canada College in Toronto and then the University of Toronto, where he studied history and philosophy, Bacque began his career as a fiction writer, publishing the novels The Lonely Ones (novel was re-titled Big Lonely when published in England and in paperback by M&S in 1978), A Man of Talent (Toronto: New Press, 1972) and The Queen Comes to Minnicog . He has also written a number of plays and teleplays. In 1989, Bacque published his first non-fiction book, the controversial Other Losses. The book thesis was that the Allied Supreme Commander Dwight Eisenhower’s policies caused the death of 790,000 German captives in internment camps through disease, starvation and cold from 1944 to 1949. He followed it up with two more World War II-related books: Just Raoul and Crimes and Mercies. He also published another work of fiction, Our Fathers' War.
