Behind the Wire: German Prisoners of War at Camp Sutton, 1944-1946

Record #:
During World War II, Camp Sutton in Union County was a US Army engineer training base and prisoner-of-war camp. Camp Sutton housed over 1,000 German soldiers captured in France, Italy, and North Africa. One Camp Sutton prisoner, Matthias Buschheuer, relates his experiences which were common amongst his German comrades. Buschheuer's pleasant experiences at Camp Sutton created strong bonds with many North Carolinians that became lifelong friendships.
