Tuesday, April 18 109th day- 257 days follow

May 13 - Over in the war room I saw the complete picture to 1200 hours. The 88th division took Castleforte and Sainte Marie. The French have an objective surrounded and set for the cut off - Our boys are moving slowly but surely and the big counter - attack by the Kraut hasn't stated as yet.

Artillery is still playing the big part. There is a battery of German 170's not neutralized as yet. A few stray shells landed near us today. The noise and flashes are audible and visible. We have on the complete front 2400 guns and rifles. How long can they take it.

Air power over head to-day at least every 20 minutes. B17 - B-25. Forts going over to France. Many fighter escorts. Our front here had a German strafe job, we were all alerted and immediately tore ass for a foxhole.

To-night and tomorrow our history will be written. We will make it. God willing -

The reports from the States claim we got the head lines -
