Coauthor Erich Friedrich won the Iron Cross fighting the Soviets. But when he refused to give the Nazi salute and criticized Hermann Goering, he was charged with subversion and thrown into a cell. With him were a suspected spy, two accused deserters, a Jehovah's Witness, a draft dodger, and a leftist. To try to push back the terror of the unknown, each man took a turn telling why he was awaiting torture and possibly death. Friedrich vowed to remember their remarkable stories forever.

Finally, one of the most remarkable stories of World War II. Seven Germans imprisoned by their countrymen for crimes against the Fatherland tell their individual tales of capture, imprisonment, and dwindling hope. "Hitler s Prisoners" is a war story of another kind and a compelling read.
This book is a fascinating story of ordinary people caught between resistance and submission to the Third Reich. In it speak the voices of Germans not often heard abroad. It offers its readers a fresh perspective on the impact of repression, violence, and war on Hitler's other victims the Germans forced to fight his war.
