I would like to research my late father's war time history. I do not speak German and do not know where to start.
He was born in Koinigsburg and was called up - at the age of 18- in 1944
(I think) he was initially sent to Russia but when the Americans joined the war he was sent to France and was captured by the Americans 3 weeks after the D day landings.
He was a POW in England then America then Belgium and finally England.
His name was Fritz Robert Borchert.
Can any body help ?
