Christolph Hoffmann and four other WW II German saboteurs were discovered living in the U.S. by a TV journalist. They lived normal lives for over sixty years after the war, raising families, with flourishing businesses and having a positive impact on their communities. Al five became US citizens. One man, Rev. Hoffman, led an extraordinary life and became an ordained minister. He was also a German Prisoner of War during World War II. The odyssey of his life as a POW readily displays vast differences between good Germans and Nazi Germans. Nazi Germans in POW camps were staunch, hardened Nazis trying to maintain control and power over non-Nazi prisoners. The U.S. authorities eventually separated the two factions to curtail violence and maintain control. This book is based on the little known fact that 425,806 prisoners of war were interned in forty-five of the forty-eight United States during WW II.
