COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Jake McNiece | 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division - Army

12:46   |   (From Interview #2 Jan. 9, 2011 Video #18) The paratroopers were scattered around everywhere. It was the night before the D-Day invasion and Jake McNiece was trying to round up enough men to carry out his mission to blow bridges on The Douve River. He managed the task but between him and the Americans advancing from the beach were hundreds of Germans. No problem.
