About this title

Synopsis:

Officially it was called "reeducation" and presented to the POWs as "intellectual diversion"; actually it was indoctrination for democracy and, Gansberg admits, a clear violation of the Geneva Convention's prohibition against "denationalization." Leaving the intriguing legal and moral issues aside, Gansberg delves into previously unmined archives of the Prisoner of War Special Projects Division (POWSPD), to trace the story of the men--German and American--who put together a blitzkrieg of books, films, English-language courses, and lessons in German and American history to inculcate the values of democracy in some 372,000 Germans held in American POW camps.
