During World War II, many Georgians witnessed the enemy in their backyards. More than 12,000 German and Italian prisoners captured in far-off battlefields were sent to POW camps in Georgia, including a work detail of 40 German soldiers at Augusta National Golf Course.
Join author and historian Jason Wetzel as he explores the daily lives of POWs in Georgia and the lasting impact they had on the Peach State.
