Description

Hagiwara discusses his shipment overseas, taking a U-boat through the Strait of Gibraltar and ending in Oran. There, they would train some more and prepare to join the rest of the men in Italy. He also talks a bit about various members of his unit and the duties of the antitank platoon, including litter-bearing and carrying supplies. After this, he talks about joining up with the 100th Infantry Battalion and talking with soldiers about the accuracy of German soldiers. He would later join up with the 36th Division and the 92nd Division as they made their way through France. Following the Lost Battalion campaign and the Champagne Campaign, they would get on a boat and head back to Italy, which would spell the end of the war.
