COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

7:09   |   The Rhine was a wide river, impossible to cross without a bridge and Emil DeDonato was heading toward a small railroad bridge that had been found. The Americans were slowly moving across the narrow structure and he took the opportunity to search nearby buildings where he made a lucky find. He was lucky again when, further down the road, German civilians welcomed the GI's.
