Prisoner of War
WW II, Germany
1944 - 1945

This page represents our tribute to the men who went down over enemy territory and became Prisoners of War. Most suffered gross indignities, maltreatment and injuries at the hands of their captors and some died in the prison camps. The hardships were considerably greater for them than for those of us who returned to Glatton and completed our tour..........and to these former POWs, we offer our gratitude for their courage and endurance throughout their many months in captivity.

The following is an alphabetical list of all those men of the 457th who were Prisoners of War. Each name is a link to how they became POW's. More information will be added about each individual as it is obtained and we implore former POWs to contact us with any personal information or stories of their experiences so that we may publish them here.
