About this product
- DescriptionThis is the only book available that tells the full story of how the U.S. government, between 1942 and 1945, detained nearly half a million Nazi prisoners of war in 511 camps across the country. With a new introduction and illustrated with more than 70 rare photos, Krammer describes how, with precedents upon which to form policy, America's handling of these foreign prisoners led to the hasty conversation of CCC camps, high school gyms, local fairgrounds, and race tracks to serve as holding areas. The Seattle Times calls Nazi Prisoners of War in America the definitive history of one of the least kwn segments of America's involvement in World War II. Fascinating. A table addition to the history of that war.
- Author BiographyArnold Krammer is Professor of History at Texas A & M University in College Station, Texas.
