James B. Cox

Through Eschwege, Schlotheim, Pegau_Eastward bound. Rumors about the Russions magnifying with every hour....they are 50 miles away, 40, 20...the war is almost over, spirits are soaring, the end is in view. But at Groitzch the German is unware of hs perilous position, he is fighting still. The writing on the wall reminds him of "Victory of Siberia". It is these new fanatics, who believe they cn halt the roiling wave of Allied might, that snuff out the life of James Cox and seriously injure Sgt. Hershel Tipton and T/5 Millard Foster.
It is these men in their natty uniforms that have bred death, destruction and misery along the length of Europe.
