Big Gestapo Man – Anton Dunckern was the big noise in Metz before he was captured by Doughboys. After that, he was just a big, arrogant Nazi who was under the delusion that all the world loves a fat man, no matter what uniform he wears. But nobody loved this Gestapo chief, including the German military commander of the city. By Sgt. Saul Levitt

On Limits – It has been said before that fighting men aren’t much interested in the history of places they’re fighting for—and that’s the way it was in Strasbourg. There were beds, good food and drink and no Off Limits signs–important things to an Infantryman. By Cpl. John Preston

Flushing the Luftwaffe… – On November 2, an epic air battle took place over Germany—more Allied fighters opposed to more German fighters in a limited space of sky than ever before in this theater. In the light of subsequent enemy activity, the significance of this furious encounter has become increasingly important, since it was this mission that disclosed the increased production of German fighters, and proved once again that the German pilot is nobody to fool around with. By Sgt. Maurice Barrangon

Visit to Tokyo – Two GIs tell how B-29s bombed the Imperial capital, beginning a concentrated campaign to soften up the industry of Japan and pave the way for invasion. By Sgt. Bill Reed
