COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

7:11   |   At the Rhine, one of the 44th Infantry Division's units directed the first ground fire across the river into Germany. German resistance stiffened at that point because they were now defending the Fatherland. He recounts an operation to capture a bridge at Heidelberg and another incident which cured him of a strange phobia.
