This soldier took out a German pillbox with only a small bomb and a trench knife
Company D of the 101st Infantry was assaulting German lines in Beaulieu Bois, France, when they came under fire from a pillbox. Fire from seven automatic weapons rained down on them. The American infantrymen maneuvered on the Germans to try and silence the guns.
Unfortunately, the enemy had expected the American move and began tossing grenades out the door to the fortification, preventing anyone getting too close.
Perkins was not scared of things like grenades and pillboxes, so he crept up to the bunker with a small bomb and a trench knife.
