"Captured on the battlefields of Europe and Africa, or on the open sea, 25,000 German officers and other ranks were sent to camps across (Canada), to live out the duration of the war behind barbed wire. Many of these men were the cream of Hitler's fighting troops, and they regarded it as their duty to escape imprisonment and return to Germany to fight again." Here are stories of these escapes and escape attempts, as well as information on the organization and running of the camps and on murders, riots and schemes that took place in some of them.
