Stark Decency: German Prisoners Of War In A New England Village
Stark Decency: German Prisoners Of War In A New England Village
By Allen V. Koop
University Press of New England, 1988, 136 pp

Nearly 400,000 German prisoners of war were interned in the United States during World War II. This beautifully written little book describes one of the smaller camps-at Stark in northern New Hampshire. It is a tale of basic decency and humanity in which prisoners, guards and civilians lived and worked together harmoniously. A benign footnote to a malignant war.
