Germany Date:1945, April 7 Duration:1 min 9 sec Sound:NO SOUND
A month before the end of World War 2, in Europe, an American gun crew is seen with 105 mm howitzer set up under a camouflage net at the edge of a field next to a road near Lubbecke (Lübbecke), Germany. The gun crew is from the U.S. 326th Field Artillery Battalion,84th Infantry Division. The crew loads and fires several rounds. After the first round is fired, one crewman rubs the barrel where the name of their gun, "Berlin Bound," is painted. Local homes can be seen around the field. At end, a brief glimpse of the gun from the road, shows that it is set up close to several large German homes.
