COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

4:51   |   Serving occupation duty in Salzburg, Austria, Howard Margol's unit was stationed at a large displaced persons camp. Each soldier had to take ten German prisoners into the woods on firewood detail. This led to an ironic situation when a prisoner escaped from one of the crews, though it wasn't the one you might think.
