Shattered Walls - A World War II Memoir: From Cherbourg to Berlin

The author of Shattered Walls, G. Richard Morgan, served with the Third Platoon, Company G of the Second Battalion, 407th Infantry Regiment - 102nd Infantry Division.

Landing at Cherbourg, directly from the US, in mid-Sept of 1944, the 407th Infantry Regiment was rapidly sent into combat. They saw major action reaching the Roer River and pushed on to the Elbe, being part of the resistance to the Bulge. At one point, Morgan was captured by the Germans, but luckily escaped.

When they reached Berlin, they waited for the Russians and drank vodka with them on May 3.

At that point there remained only two of the original 40 men in his platoon.
