COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Arnold Whittaker | 10th Infantry Regiment, 5th Infantry Division - Army

4:29   |   It was Christmas day, 1944. Patton's prayer had worked. The weather had cleared and the 5th Division moved up to a spot that was way too open for Arnold Whittaker. He pushed four feet of snow aside and began to dig his foxhole. He had a hole about as big as his head in the frozen ground when he heard it, the unmistakable sound of Screaming Mimis.
