From Library Journal:

This prodigiously researched case study focuses on German prisoners of war housed in Utah during World War II. Powell concludes that by and large, German POW's were treated well by residents and military officials. With the exception of one incident in Salina, Americans provided adequate provisions, sufficient leisure-time activities, and a minimum of propagandizing (save for a few overly zealous Mormons). Most Germans had few complaints about their treatment, and some even maintained contact with their captors after returning home. Unfortunately, the work is too long; "filler" chapters on Italian POW's and American prisoners in Germany add little. Nonetheless, an interesting addition to the literature; recommended for large public and university libraries.
