Linzey Foret presents Wehrmacht in Louisiana
As the Allies defeated Axis powers in Africa and Europe, German and Italian soldiers were captured as prisoners of war. As the number of POWs grew to a staggering total, the Allies were forced to ship some of them to America. Louisiana's new temporary residents caused quite a stir as the POWs interacted with locals and harvested rice and sugarcane.
