Abstract Mahoney (b. 1922) was in ROTC at the University of Utah when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. After his graduation in 1943 he was assigned to the 276th Armonred Field Artillery Battalion. He describes joining up with his tank crew in France, being diverted up to the Battle of the Bulge, combat in Germany, and coming into contact with liberated American prisoners of war whose fellow-prisoners had confiscated the lion's share of food packages, leaving them to starve. He served with the occupation forces in Austria. 43 pages.
