He was lucky he survived. Some POWs died due to hunger, torture, or outright executions. Near the end of the war the allied air forces had air superiority and was close to air supremacy, but the Germans had the ME-262 we still had to contend with, but there was no chance the ME-262s would turn the air war around. We engaged the Germans on the ground and from the air. It was just a matter of time the allied forces would become victorious.

I believe that he was part of the 106th Infantry Division. Two of their regiments were cut off, surrounded, and had to surrender at the start of the Bulge, and many were housed at Stammlager (Stalag) IV-B. Kurt Vonnegut was with the 106th and was also housed at IV-B.

The remainder of the division, reinforced by the 112th Infantry (from the 28ID, PA ARNG) held the line at St. Vith and played a major part in slowing the Germans down.
