From Publishers Weekly
During WW II, the U.S. held close to 400,000 German POWs in camps around the country; interviews with prison camp officials and POWs who became American citizens shed light on a seldom-discussed aspect of this country's history. "Krammer's valuable book breaks ground and exposes a unique side of the drama of Nazi fanaticism vs. the easygoing American way," said PW. Illustrated.

This is no doubt the definitive history of one of the least-known segments of America's involvement in World War II. Fascinating. A notable addition to the history of that war. (The Seattle Times)
Delightful. Outstanding. (The Houston Post)
Absorbing. Krammer's valuable book breaks ground and exposes a unique side of the drama. (Publishers Weekly)

held in America during WWII. I heard one of his lectures on the subject on a recent C-Span telecast, which prompted me
to order/read the "original source". Very thoroughly researched, very detailed footnoting of sources, but very readable.
My only complaint is the title of this book as not all WWII prisoners were Nazis. In fact, they were mostly kept separate from the regular German army prisoners. There were many German prisoners used in the Midwest where, because of the great number of German emigrant farmers, language barriers were minimal. Also some farmers had relatives in the German army.
