Bert Trautmann grew up to be a hero in his adopted country of England. As a goalkeeper for Manchester City, he’s celebrated to this day for playing through the 1956 FA Cup finals with a broken neck; in retirement—despite lingering grief over the tragic loss of his first-born son—his charitable works earned him an Order of the British Empire. Yet his road to valor was paved with infamy: He arrived in country as a German POW, having served in the Luftwaffe under Hitler.
