The quote and ref is from ,'Other Losses,' and you can take that as you will- badly I suppose. The anecdotal evidence- I've spoken first hand to a GI who was a guard and I asked him about the SS and his experience of them. His answer was that, 'there was a policy that they didn't get as far as the prison camp.' This and other such accounts confirm David Stafford. As for your gibe I'm sure that you've got more self respect than to repeat it. I hope so. Let's keep to the discussion and not get personal.
