German POWs in Muleshoe Cotton Field

World War 2 German POWs tend cotton crop near Muleshoe Texas. With nearly seventy prisoner of war camps, Texas had approximately twice as many as any other state. These camps ranged from extremely large base camps that housed thousands of prisoners to small branch camps that held less than 100. Over 50,000 German soldiers were held in Texas during World War II.
