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.

As a former Wisconsin resident, I was curious about this book. Wisconsin has always had a very large population of German immigrants. I was curious about German POWs being sent to America and of all places to be sent - Wisconsin ! The book has a "homey" touch and the way the POWs were treated and how they felt about working on American farms owned by Germans is interesting. It was an intersting read.
