When two opposing countries go to war, a plan is initiated by both sides to organize an installation that will house, feed, and guard any belligerents that are captured during the course of the conflict. These locations were either well behind the front lines, or even in another continent, as was the case in the European component of World War II. Any captured German soldiers by British troops were sent to Canada for internment. The purpose was twofold, the first being that their presence would infuriate the citizens whose houses and farms were being bombed by the Luftwaffe during the course of the war, and second, to make escape impossible if their homeland was an ocean away. The men were separated according to rank with the enlisted men sent off to work camps, making them more manageable. The officers were in more remote parts of the country, near rural industries (mining and such). The separation also prevented officers from rallying the privates into a large escape force, thus, creating havoc for the allies. The upper echelons tended to be more content and non-provoking amongst themselves. These officers were well educated, intelligent and had skill sets desired in the enemy’s country. The fact that they got themselves captured unharmed, speaks volumes of their disdain for war. Both countries think they will win and having intelligent leaders in their presence might influence them to stay after the war ends. The language barriers disappear in less than a year due to immersion in the others’ language. Following the war, rebuilding is necessary and staying in the victor’s country may be more appealing than going back to an annihilated homeland. Also, many men have died, or been maimed, and any able body man is an asset. As for the enlisted men, they have been worked to near death at mundane jobs with no rewards and no time off, but due to the rules of the Vagina Convention, they rarely get screwed. These sordid prisoners of war are called husbands.
