COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Jim Sample | 93rd Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron (Mechanized), 13th Armored Division - Army

4:42   |   Other units had gone around the Ruhr, but it fell to the 13th Armored Division to go in and clean up. It was there that Jim Sample came to hate church steeples. They either had a sniper in them or they made for excellent artillery targeting if you were near one. He knocked his own jeep out of commission through a freak accident with a grenade.
