COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

2:35   |   The German 88 was a formidable weapon, but it had one disadvantage. The high velocity of the shell didn't allow for a timed burst, which was a great tactic to use against ground troops. American technology had developed a new proximity fire shell, which would always explode at a set distance from it's target. This made it very effective.
