Excerpts: Chapter 16 – Buchenwald
On the outskirts of town was a little hill. Bill Butz and I went with Major Williams to the top of the hill for a look-see. We had been there only a little while when we saw six men, formed as skirmishers, coming toward us with their rifles at their hips. Naturally we spread out and took cover. This would have been a hell of a time for the Krauts to attack us as all of our men were just moving into town. We looked through our glasses. The men heading toward us were not wearing helmets. When they came closer we saw their striped pants and shirts and knew they were escapees from the concentration camp. When they got to us we found out they were Russians. They told us what had happened.
