Echange of POWs during the war in Europe...

Post by L. Kafka » Thu Aug 21, 2014 4:52 pm

I'm guessing that there was no exchange of POWs between the Allies and the Japanese before the war ended, but I seem to recall some prisoner exchanges between the Allies and the Germans. Can anyone cite some instances in the ETO?
