A study of a German prisoner-of-war.
German prisoners were placed in spaces where they could be easily guarded while being transported to Britain on U.S. Navy ships. The large empty tank deck of an LST was such a space.
Among the prisoners taken during the D-Day landings were such non-Germans as Czechs, Poles, Yugoslavs and even Mongolians, which on first observation might easily have been mistaken for Japanese. Upon arrival in southern England, they were interned in facilities with barbed wire perimeter fences which, with armed guards, prevented them escaping.
German army prisoners of war, after being transported to Britain, were assembled in temporary internment facilities before being dispersed to P.O.W. camps all over England and Scotland.
