COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Harold Ford | 232nd Infantry Regiment, 42nd Infantry Division - Army

5:15   |   Like many other young men, Harold Ford joined the ASTP program that sent draftees to college to study engineering. That lasted exactly one semester before the Army decided that it needed infantry more than engineers. It wasn't long before he was at the front line on the Rhine, where it was eerily quiet, except for that time he tried to see across the river.
