This chapter examines the complex negotiations among Nazi Germany, Britain, and the United States for the mutual repatriation of seriously wounded and seriously sick prisoners of war (POWs) during World War II. It looks at the issues that had to be addressed among the three countries before the POWs could be released, including the method of transport and adherence to Article 70 of the Geneva Convention. The chapter also considers the roles played by the British Foreign Office, the U.S. War Department, Germany's mixed medical commission, and the International Committee of the Red Cross in facilitating the exchange of POWs.
