COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Guy Whidden | 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division

5:15   |   Pushing on after Normandy, Guy Whidden was in the Netherlands and surrounded by Germans. His unit took a pounding from mortars and shrapnel from a round hit his leg. As he treated himself, the barrage continued to take lives around him. Crawling from the field to a ditch, he was noticed and picked up by an officer who carried him to safety.
