COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Marvin Russell | 407th Bomb Squadron, 92nd Bomb Group, 8th Air Force - Army Air Corps

6:17   |   The Russian Army was approaching, so the prisoners of Stalag 17B were forced onto the road where they could hear explosions coming from Vienna. They marched for six weeks with little food except what they could forage. At one point, they passed a group on the road that was even more pitiful than they were and who were headed to a much worse fate.
