COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

9:20   |   (From Interview #2 Jan. 9, 2011 Video #24) Jake McNiece relates his parachute jump into Holland right in the middle of a Panzer unit. He administered morphine to a friend with a grievous wound who was left for dead. Imagine his surprise when he saw him again, later. The Holland fight was totally different from the guerilla type fighting he had in Normandy and it went on way too long.
