This 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 no 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 known segments of America's involvement in World War II. Fascinating. A notable addition to the history of that war."

About the Author:

Arnold Krammer is Professor of History at Texas A & M University in College Station, Texas.

From Publishers Weekly:

During WW II, the U.S. held close to 400,000 German POWs in camps around the country; interviews with prison camp officials and POWs who became American citizens shed light on a seldom-discussed aspect of this country's history. "Krammer's valuable book breaks ground and exposes a unique side of the drama of Nazi fanaticism vs. the easygoing American way," said PW. Illustrated.
