Today we have a nice soul palette cleanser of an episode for you, war hero Alton Knappenberger. They called him the "one man army" but all he wanted to be was just a regular working class Joe. He just had to shoot through a bunch of Nazis to get to live out that dream. Then the army did what they do with a propaganda gold mine, kept him in the rear, ran a bunch of stories, and used him to sell war bonds. But for one battle, this dude was straight up unstoppable. Enjoy!
