Unlike many former prisoners of war, German Army veteran Gerhard Hennes has fond memories of his time in captivity.
A lieutenant in the Afrika Corps, Hennes spent two years in World War II POW camps — including a year at Crossville — after being captured at Tunisia in 1943 by the British.
He said he ate well and was treated fairly by his captors, in stark contrast to how his own army dealt with the Russian prisoners he encountered in the autumn of 1941.
