COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Fred Lott | 3rd Battalion, 272nd Infantry Regiment, 69th Infantry Division - Army

5:31   |   At night the GI's would stay in German houses. Fred Lott recalls the time they threw a lot of the resident's belongings into the yard and a woman began weeping. From then on, they treated the displaced German civilians with respect, which was returned. At one house, a howitzer battery was placed a little too close for comfort.
