Bullets from long bursts of machine gun fire are now
cracking all around us. Mortar shells begin exploding
just behind us.... The bullets and shells are taking their toll.

Riflemen — Life & Death in WW-II Infantry

by Paul N. Haubenreich, Sr. and William L. Schaible

True stories of combat in the words of infantrymen who fought their way across Germany in 1944-45 as members of the Second Platoon, K Company, 407th Infantry Regiment.
    More than a dozen veterans of the Second Platoon made significant contributions, then reviewed and commented on the combined narrative. The outcome is an authentic picture; not only of the fear, courage, and pain attending life-or-death fighting, but also of everyday life in the European Theater of Operations.
