About Letter 186
For the first time Bill writes from German soil. Things continue at lighting speed. "Armies tearing here and there.....Patton, I fully expect will be fighting in China in a few weeks." He describes Germany as "rich and beautiful" except for the towns where "the effectivenes of our air corps is quite evident". The people, Bill says "appear well fed and are anxious to please us (they're quite afraid of us)."
