This is Armed Forces Radio

London, invasion at last.

Allied armies assault enemy held

France from sea and skies

smashing onto the Nazi held

beaches of Normandy.

A vast air armada of allied

paratroopers and gliders invade

Holland from the skies to free

the desperate Dutch people from

the clutches of their

Nazis masters.

Thousands of Hollanders pour

onto the roads and streets to

greet the allied liberators.

Fighting desperately rifle to

rifle, American GI's repel and

destroy a massive

German panzer army.

General Patton's tanks rush in

from the South destroying Nazi

forces and rescuing our boys

trapped behind enemy lines.

American shock troops capture

the Ludendorff Bridge and race

over the Rhine river, slashing

deep into the heart land

of Nazi Germany.

Entire American tank divisions

fan out against ever weakening

enemy resistance, as Russian

troops assaulted his underground

headquarters, Adolph Hitler took

his own life rather then

being captured alive.

Nazi Germany

teeters on surrender

as the Fatherland crumbles.

Hundreds of thousands of the

captured enemy clog the roads as

the furious allied

onslaught races forward.

Our frontline combat soldiers

battle their way deep into enemy

territory followed by an endless

bucket brigade of support

troopers who roll on day and

night keeping our fighting boys

brimming with bullets,

boots and bread.

The expanding gap between the

frontline spearhead and the

critical rear guard a vast

moonscape of wrecked

battle debris and enemy

dead is a no man's land

our GI's have nicknamed,

"The Void,"

this is Armed

Forces Radio London.

That rain is really coming down.

You got them?

Dead in my sight.

It's a kill shot.

What's McConkie saying?

Still waiting for him to

give us the go ahead.

This waiting game is killing me.

We have to be patient.

Company command wants us to wait

to engage the enemy

till they give us the signal.

It's stuffy in here we need

some fresh air.


Relax Simms you haven't had a

bath in a week,

consider it a blessing.

Roger that.

McConkie wants us to wait 'til

it's completely dark out there,

then he will give us

the signal to fire.


Mitchell are you ready?

I'm good... and ready to move.

Seek, strike, destroy.

Seek, strike, destroy.

Do you know why I've

brought you out here?

We have a problem that needs

to be discussed.

This morning three men tried to

escape, two of them were shot.

Someone helped these

men to get out.

I want to know,

by whom.

I do not tolerate this kind of

behavior in my stalag.

Next time I will not be

so forgiving.

Do not doubt me, there

will be no escape.

Copy that out.

McConkie has given the command

to engage, fire when ready.

- Ready?

- Clear

On the way.

Come on.

Sergeant Atwood,

McConkie wants to see you and

Whitaker right away.


She's slowly dying on you.

She'll make it.

I bet you if I asked her nice and

she'd take me all the wayback to Pocatello.

Or you can trade her in

for a new one.

Now those are fighting words.

Don't talk about my

lady like that.

What? Do you think you can

take me pops?

Any day of the week, and

twice on Sunday?

Oh yeah, what'cha

going to do grandpa?

Oh, and you missed,

what'cha going to do?

Look at that I got

Nelson in a Nelson.

I'm sorry.

Don't apologize to me

apologize to the lady.

- I'm sorry ma'am.

- Its miss.

I'm sorry miss, that was very

rude of me to say and

it won't happen again.

Hey, knock it off enough of the

horse play we got to get moving.

All right, all right.

Don't mess with Ramrod,

Ping Pong.

Good advice.

Atwood, Whitaker we need the two

of you to do a little of hit and

run for our boys up

in Braunlage.

Atwood you are going to be

acting sergeant on this one.

Baker company is having a little

bit of trouble with some

stubborn Germans here on the

east side of the village.

Can't they just get the...



Yeah, Brgermeister to convince him

that the war is basically over?

Well, they tried but they shot him and

this is just a little pocket of resistance

that Vsomehow slipped through the cracks.

I need you guys to go in there

shake'm up a little bit.

Do you want us to take any infantry

or security boys with us sir?

No the two M18s will suffice.

We can leave right away?

Captain I'm one man short

on my gun team.

The assisting gunner got his hand

caught behind the breach this morning.

Shattered his wrist.

Any available replacements?

No you will just going to have to

make due for the next few days.

What about Nelson?

He knows the drill we could

promote him, move to

loader on your team.

That's a good solution

let's go with that.

You know with Hitler being dead

and Russians taking Berlin this

might be the last bit of

action you boys see.

This whole thing is going to be

over in a week mark my words.

I don't want anyone to die

today, so by the book.

Yes sir.

And General Allen is going

to be coming forward today

I want the both of you back

here for the General's visit.

We'll take care of the issue in

Braunlage and we'll get right back.

Excellent thank you

gentlemen dismissed.


- Atwood.

- Yes sir.

Tell Simms that was a heck of a

shot last night, guard tower

2600 yards it's got to be

some kind of record.

I'll let him know

you're pleased.

Avenging Angel.

Hey what are you doing?

Hey Simms. I like that

that's a good name.


You know I saw one the other day

you are going to love this,

these boys named their


Hey. Why don't you get

back to work?

Driving trucks,

shining shoes I don't care...

just stay away from my Hellcat.

Do you understand you're

not welcomed here.

What are your deaf?

Go on leave.

Looking like Corporal Cracker

there taking a liking in you.

Yeah he is a real charmer.

You'd think that being out here fighting

against the greatest race haters in the world

we wouldn't still be having

this problem in the US of A.

It's called irony or hypocrisy

depending on which side of the

boarder you're on.

Colored don't need

drinking fountains...

that's how it was when we left

and that's how it's

going to be when we get back,

somebody told me you used to

drive one of them tanks.

Well somebody told you wrong,

M18 isn't a tank, it's a tank destroyer,

I was a Hellcat

commander for two years.

You got to have some good

stories I bet?

Good stories, I got some of

those, got some not so

good ones as well.

Now they got you driving trucks?

They busted us down at the

service unit three months ago,

General said, and I quote,

"If this battalion was

a horse, I'd shoot it."

It's a long story.

I'm all ears.

Some other time you know let's-

let's get this jimmies

loaded up and moving.


Welcome gentlemen to the Owens

Express, watch your heads,

our next schedule stop is HQ,

hot showers, clean beds and

some good grub.

Good morning, good morning?

Where did you get that?

I liberated it; had to get
