COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Hank Freedman | Headquarters Company, 422nd Infantry Regiment, 106th Infantry Division - Army

4:50   |   For some reason, the German guard in the the prison camp tower started shooting at an American fighter crossing overhead. Hank Johnson was a prisoner at that camp and when he saw the pilot bank and turn, he headed for the barracks. No way that guard was going to get away with that. It was a nice diversion for a lot of men with no hope of escape.
