About Letter 201
Bill sends home the booklet "The Story of the Century" which describes the 100th. Division's Rheinland campaign. "It's a good booklet, of course it doesn't cover the little instances...like the day when our platoon was caught by the cross fire of 3 machine guns outside of Bitche and I lay on the open ground watching machine gun slugs tear up the ground two feet from my face, or the next day when 7 Jerry tanks opened up on us with direct fire."
