COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

5:41   |   Guy Whidden had a Luger in his waistband which he almost used when the Army doctors were going to amputate his leg in Belgium. Here, he tells the story of how he acquired that Luger after having it pointed right at his forehead. This was one of the experiences that convinced him that his German enemies were very much like himself.
