Wade Nyquist's Prisoner of War Papers

My Grandfather, Wade Nyquist, was captured by the German army in Tunisia in 1943, and remained a POW until 1945. He was eventually persuaded by my Grandmother to recount the whole story so she could write it down.

At some point, my Grandmother typed up several copies of the original papers and passed them out to her kids. I found one of these copies at my Aunt's house, and scanned each page to have a digital copy for myself

It's a fascinating piece of history, which you can download here.
