What Readers Are Saying:

"It is well written, engaging, and original . . . will fill an important gap in our knowledge of World War Two on the homefront . . . Waters' book is the only book to examine the history of a single camp, and that in Texas, complete with interviews with former prisoners, guards, and local townspeople. Even more important, Waters' book is also an archaeological examination of the campsite, based on the detailed labor of dozens of young archaeological students over a period of some four years. Waters details their findings, to reveal the daily experiences of the more than 4,000 German soldiers who spent the war year in Texas. Prof. Waters and his team have unearthed a treasure trove of information which will be of interest to historians, archaeologists, history buffs, and specialists of Texas history, alike."--Arnold Krammer, author, Nazi Prisoners of War in America and Hitler's Last Soldier in America.
