Many people don't realize that prisoner of war camps were located throughout the United States during World War II. These camps had newspapers, clubs and gave many prisoners an introduction into American culture and practices. Many of these prisoners came back to settle in the United States after they were re-repatriated. This fascinating history book gives you a glimpse into what the Army's motivation and practices were.
