The Americans Who First Crossed the Rhine (Yank Magazine, 1945)

The attached article tells the story of the first Americans to cross the Rhine river into Germany following the capture of the Ludendorf Bridge at Remagen, Germany.

"One of the most striking incidents of the first day's action on the bridge was the way German snipers opened up on their own men who had been taken prisoners. As each batch of PWs was lead across the bridge, a storm of sniper fire from the surrounding hills swept its ranks. Several were killed."

Pictured on page two is a photograph of the first American to make it across: Sgt. Alexander A. Drabik (1910 - 1993) of the 27th Armored Infantry Division.

''The Americans in the Argonne Won the War''
(You Can't Print That, 1929)

Here is a segment of the famous interview with General Paul von Hindenburg that was conducted just days after the close of hostilities in which the journalist George Seldes (1890 – 1995) posed the question as to which of the Allied Armies played the most decisive roll in defeating Germany; whereupon the General responded:

"The American infantry in the Argonne won the war".

Who was Kilroy? (Various Sources, 1945 -7)

The three articles attached herein serve as good examples that illustrate the wide-spread curiosity found in most quarters of the United States as to who was this G.I. who kept writing Kilroy was Here on so many walls, both foreign and domestic, during the past three and a half years of war? It was not simply the returning veterans who felt a need to know, but the folks who had toiled on the home front as well.

Is your name Anderson?

A Pat on the Back for the GIs (Coronet Magazine, 1945)

"So they've given up."

"They're finally done in, and the rat is dead in an alley back of the the Wilhelmstrasse."

"Take a Bow, GI - take a bow, little guy."

"Far-flung ordinary men, unspectacular but free, rousing out of their habits and their homes - got up early one morning, flexed their muscles, learned the manual of arms (as amateurs) and set out across perilous oceans to whop the bejeepers out of the professionals."

"And they did."

Ol' Blood 'N Guts Goes South (Newsweek, 1945)

Here is the Newsweek obituary for the American W.W. II army commander General George S. Patton:

"As spectacular in his tactics as in his speech, he used his armor as Jeb Stuart employed his cavalry... Time after time his divisions broke through and slashed forward in drives which made military history. After the victory, German generals said they had feared him more than any other American field commander."

A World War II Prayer Story (Reader's Digest, 1944)

"A psychologist, in discussing some of the widely publicized 'miracles' of the war, puts it this way: 'God may be likened to an electric dynamo. We can receive the power of this dynamo by attaching ourselves to it by prayer; or we can prove it has no influence in our lives by refusing to attach ourselves to it by prayer. The choice is ours...' Today indisputable proof of the power of prayer are pouring in from every quarter of the globe. The only surprising thing is that we think it surprising. These praying soldiers, sailors and aviators of ours are merely following the example of Washington who knelt to ask for aid in the snows of Valley Forge and of Lincoln who, in the darkest days of the Civil War, declared: 'Without the assistance of That Divine Being Who attends me I cannot succeed; with that assistance I cannot fail.'"

The American Way of War (American Magazine, 1945)

"The Yank is not expert at deception, but he can change his plans rapidly. He is a wizard at handling machinery and he can build airfields, roads and advance bases with uncanny speed."

- so wrote one of the bewildered Japanese Army generals concerning his experiences with the American military in the Pacific.

The Invalids Speak (Literary Digest, 1935)

Speaking from their hospital wards, disabled American veterans of W.W. I express their bitterness concerning their lot and the general foolishness of the young who unthinkingly dash off to war at the slightest prompting.

''The Americans Are Here'' (Scribner's Magazine, 1919)

"Les Américains Sont Là!"

"Those were the words on everybody's lips as the first big detachments of United States troops began to appear on the Paris streets... I think there is a simple politeness in these young warriors from across the sea, whether they come from some of the big cities, New York, Boston, Chicago or from some far-away states on the other side of the Rockies."

Americans Answered The Call (PM Tabloid, 1942)

When it came across the wire that Fall of 1942 saw the U.S. Navy enlistments increase by 150%, the editors of PM were not slow to dispatch a team down to the induction center to check it out (at 67 Broad St., NYC).

Many, many African-Americans answered the call as well, but with understandable reservations...
