Company I – Sketchbook & Notes


“I crossed the Saar at Echternach and drove to Bitburg…it showed the tremendous difficulties overcome by the 76th Division in forcing the Siegfried line.

”From one point on the road along which the 76th Division had successfully advanced, fifteen pillboxes were visible in addition to dragon’s teeth and anti-tank ditches. Yet this relatively green division went through them.”

George S. Patton, Jr.
“War as I Knew It”

 

Lt Richard Keefe – 8 April, 1945 – Kefferhausen, Germany
