About Letter 215

Bill's company has moved once again. They are now in Derdingen, Germany guarding Russian DP's (Displaced Persons). The men are busy practicing for a grand review conducted by Lt. Gen. Devers, Commander of the 6th. Army Group. The latest war rumor has Stalin about to hand over Japan's unconditional surrender to Truman, which to Bill "seems absurd".

  1. Note: At the beginning of the second week of July, the Division was displaced to a new zone of occupation, further to the west. Still, there were 133 former enemy installations to be secured, and large cities to be patrolled, including Stuttgart (Location of Division Headquarters) and Pforzheim.
