Both the Germans and the Russians treated each others POWs with little human kindness or care. our World War Two Round Table had a German POW, a German LT., speak last summer. He was captured in North Africa and kept here in the States. Before he was sent to North Africa he was used to guard Russian POWs. He said daily they were dying of starvation and neglect. One day he mentioned this to his Captain. The Captain said if he was smart he would keep his mouth shut or he will end up fighting on the Eastern Front in Russia. He kept quiet and was sent to North Africa. The Russians did very little to make the German POWs comfortable as well. Rent the movie "As Far as My Feet will Carry Me". It is the true story of ONE German POW who escaped and walked over 6,000 miles, much of it across Siberia, to flee his Russian POW camp.

"You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terrors. Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival."
