Description

Tsuji continues his recollection of Camp Shelby and being shipped overseas to Oran in North Africa. Spending two weeks there, his regiment awaited their shipment to Naples in Italy where they would begin their first day. Tsuji talks about getting to Naples and immediately seeing the hardships of war. Next, he talks about another war experience, this time getting stuck in the middle of combat on Hill 140. Once being relieved from this battle, Tsuji finds himself needing medical attention and unable to eat food, which he later finds out is hepatitis. Finally, he is able to re-join H company in Florence where the locals continue their lives as if there is no war at all.
