COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Jim Denninghoff | 1st Battalion, 399th Infantry Regiment, 100th Infantry Division - Army

5:31   |   During the push into Germany, Jim Denninghoff was assigned, with some other GI's from across the regiment, to retrieve bodies from the field. At first it wasn't too bad, since everything was still frozen, but when the spring thaw came, the job got more gruesome. Once, as he went about his task in the dark, he ran into a German patrol.
