COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Rufus Dalton | 397th Infantry Regiment, 100th Infantry Division - Army

4:44   |   The action was just about over when mortar Section Leader Rufus Dalton and his men holed up in a German house. He had seen a house burn from a German rocket so he ordered his men to dig foxholes, which they weren't crazy about. Then the war was over. After a bit of occupation duty, he went home on the same ship as his brother.
