COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

5:40   |   Dan McBride couldn't stand the Brits and he was stuck in a British Army hospital in Brussels. He had a broken ankle, but when he was told they were going to ship him to a replacement depot, he and some more GI's hatched a plan to get back to their own unit. They finally made that happen and were reunited just in time to react to the news about a German breakthrough.
