Luft-Stalag V (Stalag 5) was a Prisoner of War Camp for Allied Airmen during World War II. It was commanded by at least two German officers: Major Strauss and,when he had received some "retraining", General Burkhalter. The Camp suffered from Escapes (over 100 during Strauss' command), prompting General Burkhalter to take command personally, thereby allowing the current Kommandant, Strauss, to receive training from The "Best" Kommandant at The Most Escape-proof Prison Camp in all of Germany.
