US Warrant Officers in German POW camps in WWII

I was wondering how the Germans treated captured US Warrant Officers? Like officers or NCO's? Were they placed in stalags or in oflags?

Hi Bury!

I'd venture to say that the Germans would have been very "rank conscious", and they would KNOW in what nations warrant officers were treated like commissioned officers (saluted, called sir or ma'am), and what nations had warrant officers who were treated like senior nco's.

This being the case, they'd know that putting U.S. warrant officers in enlisted POW camps would be tantamount to giving them officer leadership.
