Description

Kitagawa talks about getting rest and relaxation during the war and the activities that they would do, such as playing football. Next, he talks more about the Lost Battalion campaign, and moving onto Nice, where he would be able to get a hot meal and hot shower. They would have the Champagne Campaign, where the replacements would meet them and Kitagawa would shoot artillery fire at nearby German soldiers. After this, they would go back to Italy to try and break the Gothic Line, hiking up Mount Fogarito in the middle of the night. He discusses more about what the L company went through and his feelings on the work they did and the reunions thereafter.
