Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Bill Couch | 349th Bomb Squadron, 100th Bomb Group, 8th Air Force - Army Air Corps

5:45   |   After they had to ditch their B-17 in the ocean between Naples and Sicily, it was the Germans who got to them first. Bill Couch and the rest of the crew were now POW's. They were sent to Stalag Luft III, a huge camp in occupied Poland. It was no country club but at least they weren't abused by the guards. The SS and the Gestapo, though, you wanted to steer clear when they were around. Part 2 of 3.
