Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Charles York | Battery B, 375th Field Artillery Battalion, 100th Infantry Division, 7th Army

4:06   |   Charles York had just been reassigned as a forward observer when he pushed toward the Maginot Line, where the Germans had turned the big guns around to face the advancing American troops. He was close when they fired over his head and glad the shells were directed elsewhere. He was in charge of communications for the team which usually meant laying phone wire because the radios were unreliable. (This interview made possible with the support of COL ROBERT W. RUST, USMCR (ret.) in honor of LtGen Lawrence Snowden & LtGen George Christmas.)
