This chapter examines the issues that delayed the repatriation of British and American prisoners of war (POWs) in long-term captivity in Nazi Germany during World War II. It first considers the debate within Whitehall over the exchanges of POWs before discussing the British and German proposals for the planned exchanges. The chapter then looks at the political issues that Whitehall had to take into account in making its decision, as well as at the dispute between Britain and the United States over the former's agreement with Germany to exchange as many as 25,000 able-bodied POWs.

Keywords:   repatriation, prisoners of war, POWs, Nazi Germany, World War II, Britain, United States
