From the War in North Africa to the Invasion of Normandy, the Liberation Trilogy recounts the hard fought battles that led to Allied victory in World War II. Lübeck (/ ˈ l uː b ɛ k / LOO-bek, German: ()) (Danish: Lybæk), officially the Hanseatic City of Lübeck (German: Hansestadt Lübeck), is a city in Schleswig-Holstein, northern Germany, and one of the major ports of the river Trave, it was the leading city of the Hanseatic League, and because of its extensive Brick Gothic architecture, it is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Country: Germany.

It was a converted military training complex, and became known as Oflag XIII-B (Officers’ Camp B). After their arrival, the camp was almost filled to s: The winter of was particularly hard when food and fuel were in short supply and liberation seemed so close and yet so far away: There were major events, milestones in the occupation, however between these, life continued as best as it could given the circumstances. It became a matter of survival awaiting liberation.
