COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

6:21   |   Patton had promised that the 5th Division would be there in 24 hours. There weren't enough trucks so Arnold Whittaker and the rest of the infantry had to ride 100 miles on top of Sherman tanks to get to the Ruhr Valley. On the way, the news spread. There's a giant flask of cognac that's been liberated by an enterprising GI on a certain tank.
