This page is for all Unnamed German Prisoners that appear within the Call of Duty series.

Call of Duty 2

The Unnamed German Prisoner was a low ranking German soldier captured by Letlev's men, moments before the Battle of Moscow. He is seen in Red Army Training.

Two Germans assigned to guard a group of American POW's surrendering to men from the 7th Armored Division.

To avoid certain execution, he complies with the Soviets, and tells them that the Germans will be attacking from the South-East, trying to prove that he is worthy of staying alive. A soldier of Letlev's came into the room that the German was imprisoned in to tell Letlev of an about-to-happen battle, unaware that the prisoner said the same thing, thus proving the prisoner right.

The soldiers in the room are then sent out to battle, leaving Letlev and another Soviet soldier alone with the prisoner. Moments after the soldiers head into battle, the German prisoner is executed by Commissar Letlev.

In The Prisoners of War mission, two Germans surrender to Captain Price and his men, just as they reach the wounded American captives.


  • The German in The Prisoners of War is miss quoted in subtitles as saying "Please listen!" when he really says "Nicht schießen!", German for "Don't shoot!"

Call of Duty 3

Two German soldiers are captured sometime before or during the level, Chambois. They are only seen after the player flees the first rally point and enters the church. In the church, one of the prisoners shout at an American soldier, and the soldier replies, "You're going home in a coffin, Fritz!". It is currently unknown what happens to the prisoners, since the camera turns away to face Guzzo and Dixon.

At the end of the level, the surviving German soldiers surrender to the player and his team.

Call of Duty: World at War

The Unnamed German Prisoner is similar to that of Call of Duty 2, and is captured by the Russians in the beginning of Eviction. The player can shoot the soldier but if not, the Russian soldiers argue, and kill the soldier after.
