World War II Memoirs Of A German P.O.W.
I was a member of the 3rd Infantry Division, 7th Regiment, Company C. We landed on the beaches of Anzio, Italy on January 22, 1944, and were captured by the Germans on January 30, 1944. My military career on
what was called the front lines was short-lived.
My life as a German Prisoner of War had abruptly begun.
These pages detail my story as a German P.O.W. 
The names of fellow P.O.W.'s are listed below. Please view their pages.
Some of them were such good friends that I've combined their pages together. A few of the men listed below have passed on, but I felt it necessary to acknowledge their contributions to my memories.
