Today’s WW post is over at the WW Blog. Topic is the 424th Infantry Regiment’s short but eventful war plus Col. Tom Riggs’s story. He was in command of the 81st Engineers, manning the last line of defense before the Germans smashed through and captured St. Vith’s vital crossroads. They also captured Tom Riggs but his war was not over yet. He wound up in a prison camp in Poland, escaped and was picked up by the Red Army.
