A young soldier captured during World War II is sent to a prisoner of war camp in a small town, where he stays until the German surrender. Not an unfamiliar story. . . except the soldier is German, and the POW camp is in Crossville, Tennessee.
In his powerful true story, Gerhard Hennes shares his adventures as a POW in the United States and openly reveals the personal hopes, fears, joys, and sorrows of a young man growing disillusioned with Hitler's Germany.
Rich with tales of escape, interrogation by high ranking Allied officers, travel on the Queen Mary (converted for troop transport), and day-to-day life as a prisoner of war, The Barbed Wire is both a first-hand account of this near-forgotten chapter in U.S. history and the memoir of a German family surviving during World War II.
