The Prisoner, Stalag VIIA Moosburg

59 pages46 minutes

He finds it necessary to return to Germany in order to clear his conscience and cure a severe depression caused by an incident that occurred while at the POW camp Stalag VII-A Moosburg. My uncle Roy G. Benson Jr. was a P-51 pilot during WWII. His fighter was shot down and he parachuted to safety but was captured by the Germans. He spent a year as a prisoner of war. The latter portion of that imprisonment was at Stalag VII-A Moosburg. That is what gave me the idea for this story which, by the way, in no way resembles his story. -Burr
