Oh come on - Jump right in!
And, we all appreciate it.
I was sure this thread would die without my help so I had to jump in and bump it. Had to.
The Germans typically treated American POWs well (that term being relative), especially in the Stalags run by the Luftwaffe. However, if a US soldier happened to be Jewish or Black, that was a quite different story.
The Japanese reasoning for mistreating POWs as explained to me by a Japanese officer of the WW II era is something like this:
The only thing that separates men from animals is a sense of honor. When one surrenders, one gives up his honor. Therefore, one ceases to be a man and is no better than an animal.
They'd have been really screwed if we felt the same way....
I picked up a Shotgun News the other day - seems the repro Nazi items are still popular, from helmets to repro STGs.
And so is this freakin' thread. It may take a stake through the heart.
Maybe some silver bullets too.
No, you have to cut off the head and burn it.
