COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

John Souther | 81st Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Armored Division - Army

5:26   |   John Souther went on a lot of reconnaissance patrols at night with the aim of capturing the enemy. He had a sergeant who spoke fluent German and would rile up the prisoners by insulting Hitler. He also had a platoon leader who got caught in a shootout worthy of a Hollywood movie.
