as Stalag POW
1943 to 1945, Ranger Place fought in Naples, Foggia, Rome, Arno, and Central Europe.
His battalion went behind the lines at Cisterna, Italy where German
paratroopers closed in on them and he was captured. As a result of this
capture, he spent the next 15 months as
a POW at Stalag VllA, Stalag IIB, and Stalag IIIB Below is a copy of his POW
ID from Stalag IIB.
growing up, Dad never talked much about the war and since he passed away
in 1989, I've set out to find out what he went through and if anyone out
remembers him, or spent
time in the POW camps with him.
