World War One THEN
100 Year Ago This Week
[MUSIC TRANSITION]
This week 100 years ago in both the Official Bulletin, the US government's daily war gazette and the New York Times,  there are stories about the first American Prisoners-of-war captured by the Germans.
This got us thinking about the subject of POWs in WWI.
What were the rules? I mean, the Geneva convention that we usually think of, when we think of prisoner of war “treatment” today generally refers to treaties from 1949 after WWII. Those were updates from 2 treaties pulled together in 1929 -
And prior to the 20th century, the treatment and rights for combatants was pretty harsh - There were attempts to develop some kind of humanitarian standards through much of the second half of the 1800’s after the Crimena war.
What WAS the story with POWs in WWI? How many were there? Did the Red Cross play a role? What about American POWs?
So that’s the theme we are going to explore in today’s WW1 Centennial News THEN…   what was happening this week 100 years ago..
in the war that changed the world.
 
[SOUND EFFECT AND TRANSITION]
It’s the first week of November, 1917. The Europeans have been at war for over three years, but early this week, as they are training in a relatively quiet area of the western front, a company of American Soldiers gets raided by a German force. 3 are killed , 5 are wounded and 12 Americans get captured by the enemy.
[SOUND EFFECT]
Dateline Sunday November 4, 1917
The headline in the New York Times reads:
Attack Before Daylight
Forces in Training Held Small Salient of the Front Line Trenches
Pershing tells of loss
And the story reads:
Armed forces under the American flag have had their first clash with German soldiers---  in an attack which the Germans made on first line trenches, which the United States troops had taken for instruction --- three Americans were killed, five wounded and twelve captured.
The Germans respond to the incident with a taunting article in Berlin’s Lokal Anzeiger newspaper
[SOUND EFFECT]
Dateline Sunday November 4, 1917
Another headline in the New York Times reads:
Berlin Rejoices Over American Prisoners; Lokal Anzeiger newspaper extends a “Welcome”
The story goes on to read:
The Berlin newspaper played up the capture of the Americans in their headlines under the captions:
“Good Morning Boys” and goes on to include:
Three Cheers for the Americans. Clever chaps they
