97 Year Old WWII Veteran Describes the Horror of War
YouTube / Remember WWII with Rishi Sharma
Moran saw his friend get shot in the face. He was heavily wounded but rescued alive. His friend, Hugh Gorman, spent 4 years in a hospital and needed 13 operations to fix his face.
In his first 4 days, his group never saw a single German yet they were bombarded with 88s. They would try to shoot back randomly in the direction of where it came from.
A Terrible Sight
While visiting the place where a battle occurred a day earlier, Moran saw dead bodies everywhere. Arms, legs, heads, intestines, you name it and it’s there.
Zeroed In On Him
Flaks are no joke. Moran narrowly dodged a Flak after finding cover inside a hedgerow. If he didn’t get in in time, he would have been blown to bits.
They Were Young
It’s sometimes forgotten that these were very young men. Moran himself was 19 when he was deployed and so were his friends.
