The introduction provides important background information on the Anglo-American treatment of general officer prisoners of war during the First World War. It chronicles the initial relationship between British and American authorities in regard to POW policy and procedures in the initial stages of the Second World War. The chapter also examines potential cultural differences between the British and American militaries that may have contributed to the discrepancy in the manner in which the two Allies treated their German general officer prisoners of war.
