COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Emil DeDonato | 47th Infantry Regiment, 9th Infantry Division - Army

7:34   |   At the Battle of El Guettar, the first frontal assault failed. It was nine days before the GIs prevailed and pushed on. Emil DeDonato was shuffling between the front and the rear as part of the communications team. He had to dodge superior German firepower in the form of plentiful aircraft, burp guns, 88mm guns and Screaming Mimis.
