By: Kenneth Cox

Archival and textual resources can help a family historian complete a narrative of an ancestor who spent time as a prisoner of war. This guide book is designed to help you complete your research successfully. Also included is a list of Canadian Prisoners of War held in Germany during World War Two.    More information
