Confronting Captivity

This chapter examines the suffering and hardship that British and American prisoners of war (POWs) had to endure at the hands of Nazi Germany during World War II when they were forced to march over long distances and under severe conditions with inadequate shelter and food. Due to the Soviet Union's rapid advance, the POWs were evacuated to Germany proper, mostly on foot. The chapter discusses the actions taken by Britain and the United States to address the plight of the POWs, as well as their response to the German proposal to leave Allied POWs in areas close to the present Western front if the Allies would not allow such prisoners to participate further in the war.
