This sounds interesting. How did the allies treat the highest ranking germans?
Cheers.

Oh, I am terribly sorry for failing in using some english slang. What I liked to say is that -especially in POW camps reserved for high-ranking german officers- "wires" (hidden microphones) were potentially installed all over the place. This was definitely the case in the special POW camp of Trent Park/England where from 1942-1945 plentiful of very interesting conversations between german colonels/generals have been wiretapped.

i think the leader of the camp was a colonel. the germans were treated like royalty.the canadians in bowmanville ate not good food because most of the food was send to help support the army

This Forum would benefit from posts that can be understood by all who use it.
I have a fluency in Cockney & Backslang, I wouldn't dream of using it in polite conversation.

Wouldn't it have been better to have posted: ....They Bugged their rooms! Then perhaps you wouldn't have an "ignorant Englishman" thinking you meant torture.

Wasn't this made into a film? I can't remember the name but i'm failry certain there was a film about a group of German POWs who tried to escape from a POW camp in Canada. Btw did you know there was a mass break out of SS prisoners in wales during the war?

Never heard of that before, gotta start some researching. The most dramatic story of a german POW and his (successful) escape attempts would be the one of Captain Franz Baron von Werra.

This is surely a hell of a story, a book and a movie was made about him (The one that got away)

What about Skorzeny and his chaps getting Mussolini out? That was pretty dramatic.

This (Operation Eiche) was surely a spectacular mission (and even without a single shot fired). Actually Skorzenys role in it was a minor one, he was probably involved out of "PR reasons". Most credit should go to the Luftwaffe (paratrooper) officer Major Harald Mors.
BTW, it wouldn't have been a loss if "El Duce" remained at Gran Sasso till judgement day.

That was really interesting story. All that trouble, just to disappear again.
I suppose I'd try to get home too though.
