August 16, 1944 – Wednesday

SONY DSCWe moved the first thing this morning. Just before we left I went into a house and looked around. The house was all full of English books, so I took a few of them. We rode about 12 miles up the coast. The infantry had run into a strong point and had to stop for a little bit. The people are swell to us here. This is the famous French Riviera where we landed. The Germans captured here are a mixture of all of the countries Germany had occupied. We have a lot of wine to drink. Found some wine in one house that was dated 1928. There is little work to do right now.
