I am the author of German Prisoners of War at Camp Cooke, California, and will be happy to autograph a copy.
My book is the compelling story of fourteen German soldiers who were captured during the campaigns in North Africa and Europe, and then sat out the remainder of the war as POWs in California. It is a firsthand account told by the former prisoners themselves about life as a POW at Camp Cooke and the lasting impression it had on them. The story is told against the backdrop of the nationwide POW program managed by the U.S. War Department.
