COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Don Scott | 560th Squadron, 388th Bomb Group, 8th Air Force - Army Air Corps/Air Force

10:45   |   The war was nearly over but the Russian Army was approaching from the East, so Don Scott and the rest of the POW's from Stalag Luft 4 had to hit the road on a forced march. He wasn't doing too bad until his British hobnail boots rubbed his heels raw on the cobblestones. They healed while time ran out for the Germans.
