A new book by Raffael Scheck, the Audrey Wade Hittinger Katz and Sheldon Toby Katz Professor of History, was published by Cambridge University Press in December 2014 and is available in hard cover. The book, French Colonial Soldiers in German Captivity during World War II, illustrates the experiences of French colonial prisoners of war and how their improved treatment by Nazi soldiers led to strong demands for equal rights in France at the end of the war.
