Vol. 1 No. 13 ……. Cover: Nazi Mines – The “pies” S/Sgt W. R. Nickell of Indianapolis, Ind., has stacked here are German Teller mines, picked up in Italy during one day’s stooping by an antitank outfit. Incidentally, don’t let Nickell and photographer Sgt. John Frano fool you into thinking he’s carrying them. They’re resting on a block. There’s more about Nazi mines on pages 12 and 13. ……….. Articles Inside: … Down the Road…Into the Line – The Siegfried Line wasn’t quite ready in spots, and there weren’t enough Jerries to man it fully, but it has been tough enough, with U.S. troops cracking the dragon’s teeth open by envelopment and infiltration rather than by a grand assault. / By Sgt. Mack Morriss ….. Through Liege – GI Jerry didn’t know we were even in Belgium let alone Germany. He thought we were trapped back of St. Lo – his radio said so. But in spite of his surprise, he still put up determined opposition until he saw defeat with his own eyes. / By Cpl. John Preston ….. And North of Aachen – The infantry held up before it reached the Line, then got set and hit and the Jerries were ready, mixing morters with artillery. It was tough, but the tired and dirty infantrymen moved forward, not knowing where they were going or where they had been. / By Sgt. Mack Morriss with Artwork by John Scott ….. The Soldier Speaks: Who should be discharged first after the war? ….. Study in Sound – Relentless barrages of artillery are hard to take but long hours of silence in a forward position are even tougher on the nerves. / By Pvt. Justin Gray with Artwork by Sgt. Howard Brodie ….. “The T/5 Colonel” – The 46-year-old corporal is one of those fabulous characters you generally find only in books or the movies–a genuine soldier of fortune. But unlike the Hollywood version, T/5 Alfred Perrott-White is more than a romantic adventurer–he has a reason for fighting Nazis. / By Sgt. Bill Davidson ….. Achtung Minen – A Detonator Squad Removes Two Types of German S Mines or “Bouncing Betties” ….. YANK Pin-up Girl: Burnu Acquanetta ….. News from Home ….. The Sad Sack “Told Off” / By Sgt. George Baker ….. Mail Call ….. Have You Ever Heard of Lublin? ….. Sports Parade ….. Sports: Take tour pick: Ohio State, Purdue, Michigan or Irish. / By Sgt. Dan Polier ….. Sports Service Record ….. Candidates for the Federal Ballot ….. YANK Cartoons
