COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

7:03   |   In the fight to retake Gambsheim, Harold Ford first had to dodge some friendly fire, then had to hide from some German tanks. With two others from his mortar squad, he hunkered down with some wounded GI's and a dozen French civilians in the cellar of a train station. They hid for hours, but, eventually, there came a sound from the top of the stairs.
