Hitler's Generals in America

University Press of Kentucky

Chapter 5 analyzes the wholesale change in the American perspective on German general officer prisoners immediately after the conclusion of the war in Europe. It describes the interrogation of German generals at Fort Hunt, Virginia, and the establishment of the Hill Project, a secret, Allied military intelligence project that utilized German general staff officers to write research studies for the U.S., British, and Canadian militaries. The chapter argues that America’s changing national security interests after the war were reflected in U.S. prisoner-of-war policy and the manner in which American authorities reconceptualized German general officer prisoners of war as “allies” in the postwar world.
