Key words were "western Allies"...Russian POWs and German POWs of the Russians would be far higher.

Interestingly enough some of the sources I have read put the number of German POW deaths in Russian hands as significantly lower than Russian POWs in German hands.

The numbers seem to show about 25-35% of German POWs died in Russian Captivity and between 45-55% of Russians died in German captivity.

The main problem is in finding any genuine numbers, the Russians claim it was as low as 10% but I find their mathematics to be as dubious as the Chinese and as a rule of thumb when dealing with Chinese statistics I find it best to double and add 50%.
