Stalag 17, the German prisoner of war camp of Hogan's Heroes fame, held American airmen POWs in World War II. In introducing their accounts of survival, Sloan (English, Miami U., Ohio) relates how her uncle's long-unshared story led her to other POWs' logs. In a timely entry, Carano points out that the Geneva Convention "protected us against the atrocities inflicted against other nationalities." Entries include drawings, poems, escape letters, and retorts against those back home who berated them for getting captured. The memoir includes a list of his barracks comrades, photos, further reading, and an index.
