Chapter 2 describes the initial transfer of four Wehrmacht general officers to the United States for interrogation at Byron Hot Springs, California. The chapter follows the transfer of the generals through Mexia, Texas, and then to their “permanent” home in Clinton, Mississippi. The chapter demonstrates how poorly American accommodations for German general officer prisoners compared to those of their British counterparts and questions American motivations for bringing these men to America in the first place.
