Among the many German immigrants to the United States over the years, one group is unusual: former prisoners of war who had spent between one and three years on American soil and who returned voluntarily as immigrants after the war. Drawing on archival sources and in-depth interviews with 35 former prisoners who immigrated, the book outlines the conditions and circumstances that defined their unusual experiences and traces their journeys from captive enemies to American citizens. Although the respondents came from different backgrounds, and arrived on America at different times between 1943 and 1945, their experiences as prisoners of war not only left an indelible impression on their minds, it also provided them with opportunities and resources that helped them leave Germany behind and return to the place ""where we had the good life.
