Night and fog : American GIs in German death, concentration, and slave labor camps / by Daniel B. Drooz.
Using personal interviews, government documents from Germany and the US, the author explores the experience of American prisoners of war who were held in German concentration and death camps. This work provides detailed accounts that document the presence of American POWs in these camps. Additionally this dissertation explores the reasons why the US government systematically suppressed information about the presence of American POWs in concentration, death and slave labor camps. It affirms German POW policy was intentionally lethal to POWs from all the Allied nations. And demonstrates how Germany systematically legalized its actions. Sending POWs to concentration and death camps was not a matter of isolated incidents. Rather, it was German policy. Only the US refused to recognize what happened. Most of all, the object of this dissertation was to give men back their history.
