Disarmed Enemy Forces (DEF), less commonly, Surrendered Enemy Forces, was a US designation for soldiers who surrendered to an adversary after hostilities ended and for those who had already surrendered POWs and held in camps in occupied German territory at that time. It was Dwight D. Eisenhower's designation of German prisoners in post-World War II occupied Germany.

  • Disarmed Enemy Forces (DEF, „entwaffnete feindliche Streitkräfte“) ist eine amerikanische Bezeichnung für die große Masse der Angehörigen von Wehrmacht und Waffen-SS, die erst nach der bedingungslosen Kapitulation am 8. Mai 1945 in Gefangenschaft kam. Auf sie wurde die Genfer Konvention über die Behandlung von Kriegsgefangenen zunächst nicht angewandt, weil sie per definitionem keine Kriegsgefangenen waren. Das entsprechende britische Begriff lautete Surrendered Enemy Personnel (SEP).

  • Forze Nemiche Disarmate (in inglese: Disarmed Enemy Forces = DEF) e, meno comunemente, Forze Nemiche Arresesi (in inglese: Surrendered Enemy Forces), fu una denominazione statunitense applicata sia a soldati che si erano arresi ad un nemico dopo la fine delle ostilità, che a prigionieri di guerra che erano detenuti in campi siti a quel tempo nei territori occupati della Germania.

  • Disarmed Enemy Forces (DEF), less commonly, Surrendered Enemy Forces, was a US designation for soldiers who surrendered to an adversary after hostilities ended and for those who had already surrendered POWs and held in camps in occupied German territory at that time. It was Dwight D. Eisenhower's designation of German prisoners in post-World War II occupied Germany. Because of the logistical impossibility of feeding millions of surrendered German soldiers at the levels required by the Geneva Convention during the food crisis of 1945, the purpose of the designation, along with the British designation of Surrendered Enemy Personnel (SEP), was to prevent categorization of the prisoners as Prisoners of War (POW) under the 1929 Geneva Convention.
