Never had there been any food like that! “If you have prisoners,” Lanny added. If it were clear there’d be a swarm of planes helping us. ” The three “Docs” bade good-by to the eager Brooklyn boy who had been so great a help to them. The boy would have a sleep, and then he would go into the line, which now had men from a score or two of units who had come straggling in. ” It was the first time the boy had known that this “Colonel” Budd was Budd-Erling, and he was quite awe-stricken. Out there in the woods and thickets tanks and tank-killers were chasing one another about like prehistoric pachyderms; men crouching behind trees and rocks and in trenches were shooting streams of steel at one another and throwing deadly grenades when they got a chance.
He knew all about cars and internal combustion engines but was dubious about his abilities as an Indian fighter; he admitted that he had never fired a shot at a human being. ” They came to another woodroad—that seemed the best name for such crude forest tracks. Taught by experience, they hid in a thicket and listened, and this proved a wise precaution. They went by like a storm, while the watchers clung to the earth like so many baby rabbits or quail.

It was the language of the Adolf Hitler Schutzstaffel Panzer Division and the Grossdeutschland Panzer Grenadier Division. The door was flung open, and men tramped in, spitting out their many crowded consonants and flashing torches about. ” The four Americans cowered and held their breath. Their talk was of the day’s adventures, and their mood was of exultation—mind triumphing over the exhaustion of the body.
