"DRAG NACH OSTEN" -- BUT NOT AS THE GERMANS PLANNED
(1) Greatly assisted by Adolf Hitler's fine system of dual highways, men of the 5th Infantry Division give an American twist to the "drive
towards the East" as they close in on Frankfurt-au-Main by way of an "autobahn," 27 March 45. "Well, the Krauts put these dual highways
in for military use, didn't they? And that's how we're using them aren't we?..." (2) Yank tourists east of the Rhine: Sgt Robert Gore and Pvt
Harry M. Curry both of Company A, 358th Infantry Regiment, 90th Infantry Division report their exact whereabouts east of Frankfurt with
the help of the excellent system of road signs. 28 March. (3) Approaching Frankfurt over the well-paved streets of German towns (in this
case Konigstadton) 5th Infantry Division foot and armor role eastward. 25 March.
