Arnold Whittaker, member of the 5th Infantry Division during the Battle of the Bulge talks about his exerpiences during the Battle of the Bulge! Interestingly, Arnold talks about the hard winter conditions he faced during the battle. Just like many other Bulge veterans, it’s always the cold and the hunger that were their biggest enemy!
The following interviews are provided to you by: http://http://www.witnesstowar.org/ With these interviews I hope to give you an impression of the experiences the veterans had. How did it feel like to be fighting during the battle of the bulge? How does a man handle these inhumane circumstances? I think we should respect and honor these men for their service and for our freedom.
Arnold Whittaker tells the story that ensued after finding a photo of a U.S. soldier in a small Luxembourg village while heading towards Germany in 1945.
Arnold Whittaker recollects the difficulty, both emotionally and physically, of dealing with fallen soldiers during the Battle of the Bulge.
