Abstract: Taking the Seven Years’ War as a case study, this research argues that the detention of prisoners of war in France generates the connexion of multiple components of the French state, driven by the objective of administrating captivity and proceeding to the prisoners’ exchanges. A non-instated war captivity system is at work, with the Secretary of State for War at its head. Here, the system is macro analysed through the lens of three of its scales. First, the normative scale explores the ideal conceptions of war captivity, their evolution in practice and in theory. Follows the prisoners’ scale, where the direct administration of the prisoner’s captivity is explored from their entrance in the system to their exit. Finally, the state’s scale embraces the main captivity system’s aspects that engage the France as a whole.
