The Enemy Among Us: German POWs in the Flint Hills

Fascinating story of German POWs sent to far reaches of Kansas; farmers and ranchers suddenly found enemy soldiers living and working in their backyards. Lecture focuses on general experiences in Kansas, with specific examples from Lake Wabaunsee POW camp in the Flint Hills. Retired Sgt. Maj. Lowell May, military historian and member of the Fort Riley Vintage Military Vehicle Club, delivers the presentation. May co-authored "Prisoners of War in Kansas 1943-46".
