Wyoming's nineteen prisoner of war camps held several thousand incarcerated Italian and German prisoners during World War II. Historical records, photographs and personal stories shared by camp residents reveal details about this little-known part of the state's history. Local agricultural and timber industries utilized POW labor, while positive relationships developed between the camp's civilian residents and prisoners. Author Cheryl O'Brien recounts the experiences of the prisoners and the intriguing story of how U.S. military personnel, prisoners and residents--in spite of their differences--collaborated to cope with the challenges of life in a POW camp.
