Me and the Sgt. were crawling on the ground,because there was a(German) sniper around. All of a sudden ,Sgt. stood up, and I told him to get down. But it was too late….a “crack” and he was dead.
I raised my helmet on a stick, and another shot rang out. I aimed at a gun pit where the shot came from, saw an enemy soldier, still holding a smoking rifle and I emptied my gun into that pit… and got them all. By that afternoon, everything was quiet.
