COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

6:10   |   The heaviest action that Jim Sample saw was in the Ruhr Pocket. The German 88 fire was tremendous. The last movement for his unit was a run to Linz to meet up with Russian forces. He was diverted to protect a wayward tank and, while waiting there, he practiced his German with some local children. Hilarity ensued.
