COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

6:07   |   The objective was Paris but the push was bogged down. Emil DeDonato was on one side of a French highway and the Germans were on the other. After suffering some of the German artillery, he saw a wave of B-17's come over and pound the enemy. The strikes were a little too close, as it turned out.
