Publisher Comments:

STALAG WISCONSIN: Inside WW II prisoner-of-war camps is a comprehensive look inside Wisconsin's 38 branch camps that held 20,000 Nazi and Japanese prisoners of war during World War II. Many of these prisoners blended with the local community, drinking at taverns and even dating local girls. Some returned and settled in Wisconsin after their release. Their familiarity with local residents caused resentment by returning soliders who had battled them in Europe and Asia.

This book is awesome. It brings the war across an ocean and literally drops it in our backyard.
I live in Sun Praire, born in 1947 but spent elementary school in Waupun & then later graduated from Waupun High School. I think it is so important for the kids of today to know this part of history. Many who would know of this are not with us anymore. We need to know where we have come from to plot our course for the future. I am in the process of e-mailing all of the friends and teachers the title of this book.
Thank you MS. Cowley for your hard work.
