Vol. 3 No. 22 ……. Aachen Reminded Some People of Stalingrad. See Pages 2 and 3 ……. Cover: Clean-Up Western Front ……. Articles Inside: …

Aachen was like Stalingrad – There were the same house-to-house and room-to-room fighting, the same combat techniques. One observer who had been in both places said that the two battles were very similar, even to the German fanatics defending the cities. It was even more similar to one Nazi who had escaped from Stalingrad, fought at Aachen, and whose days of “fanaticism” were now finished. By Sgt. Bill Davidson

Bomber + Bomber = Bomber – When a Liberator crashed on the runway of a Fifteenth AAF base in Italy, pessimists Lt. Harry Langham and T/Sgt. Vernon Shaffer waited for another crash and left the wreck untouched. A month later, a second B-24 smashed up nearby. Optimists Langham and Shaffer built a new plane out of the two wrecks. And it flew.
