Title: Four Men and a Tank Interview
Document type: Oral history
Accessibility: Free Only
Repository: Chi Chi Press
Collection: World War II Oral History Interviews
Description: In 1991, Ed Spahr told me a story about a lieutenant who, not knowing how badly he had been wounded, handed Spahr a camera and asked him to take a picture. The lieutenant was evacuated and Spahr had not seen him since. In 1992, the lieutenant, Jim Gifford, showed up at the annual reunion of the 712th Tank Battalion. Spahr, Gifford, Tony D'Arpino and Bob Rossi were all in the same crew on Jan. 10, 1945, when their tank was knocked out during the Battle of the Bulge. Here, they reminisce about that day, and many others.
