Prisoners of War in Iowa
There were about 25,000 German, Italian, and Japanese POWs in Iowa during World War II. These are soldiers that were taken prisoner during battles and held in Iowa during the war. Iowa had two main camps; Algona and Clarinda; and about 17 branch camps throughout the state. At the branch camps, the POWs worked for a short time on a specific project. Linda was able to speak with people who had the prisoners work on their farms, or worked with them in canning factories. She shares their memories in her book.
