COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Howard Margol | Battery B, 392nd Field Artillery Battalion, 42nd Infantry Division - Army

9:49   |   To Howard Margol, Wurzburg meant the old castle and the questionable actions of a couple of soldiers. Schweinfurt meant the well engineered gun emplacements and the rangefinder he and Ed Joos tried to hack open for the lenses. And Furth meant the stash of German parachutes which were cut into scarves. He wouldn't have made it to Furth if he and Ed had not stopped banging on that rangefinder when they did.
