Thanks for your reply, Ole. I rather suspected that the prisoners told all as they sat in the officer's tent or just outside it and shared ersatz coffee, stale cigars, and hardtack or maybe a foraged treat. They may even have sung songs. I just haven't come across any passages anywhere that said intell was extracted under extreme duress or torture.

It does make me wonder why, though, that interrogations were so neighborly. It also makes me wonder when attitudes changed...World War I?
