COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Bob Uhl | K Company, 114th Infantry Regiment, 44th Infantry Division

5:08   |   There was a German observation post in a church steeple and every time Bob Uhl's unit tried to move, mortars and artillery pounded them. It was a pretty church and they hated to destroy it, but it had to be done. After conventional artillery failed to take it out, a new weapon was called up. After that, he was disturbed when World War I tactics came into play.
