About this title

Synopsis:

During World War II, nearly 700 prisoner of war camps were scattered across the U.S. None were more interesting than Camp Ruston, a large complex in north Louisiana. Within its fences were some of the war's most intriguing stories, including that of German U-boat submariners. The capture and concealment of the U-505 crew at Camp Ruston was one of the war's best kept secrets. Other U-boats were represented as well, including the U-234 which was engaged in a mission to take military technology and uranium for atomic bombs to Japan when it surrendered. The relationship between the prisoners and the local community was a stark contrast to the hostility shared by their homelands. This book reveals some of the fascinating aspects of POW life, a largely overlooked facet of war.
