Here is a little-known resource: Internment Serial Numbers. There more than 16 million Americans, uniform or civilian, participated in World War II. Nearly 150,000 individuals who supported the war effort found themselves captured as POWs in internment camps run by the Japanese or Germans. Records of those prisoners exist today. The savvy genealogist just needs to know where to look and what information to have on hand when researching this information.
You can read more in an article by Dennis Dufrene published in the Top Secret Writers web site at http://goo.gl/SJAsJ. Dufrene lists several online resources that probably are unknown to most genealogists.
