Jerry’s Third Attempt At “Kamerad” Succeeds


Stars and Stripes


“With the 80th infantry Division,


The German sergeant who surrendered his squad of eight to 80th Division doughboys said he had three good reasons for doing so.


He told Captain Paul Loesser of New Rochelle, N.Y. that his commanding officer was a “stinker”, he had surrendered to the Yanks at the identical spot in the last war, and that he wanted to be sure to see his wife and son again.


The German sergeant said he tried to surrender three times previously, but each time his C.O. evacuated the squad before he could carry out his plan.”
