COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Dan McBride | 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division - Army

6:39   |   He was shot in the arm so they gave him some German prisoners to take to the beach. When Dan McBride got down there, the prisoners saw the great armada that had crossed the channel. Definitely disheartening. After a short recovery, when his unit had returned to England, they were given what was called a short, easy mission jumping into Holland. It didn't work out that way.
