January 31, 1945 – Wednesday

SONY DSCThe infantry is still moving but they are flanking Colmar. The company has been putting up a lot of foot bridges as there are plenty of canals to cross. We moved this morning to a new area. For the first time this winter we are out in the woods. There are no towns left standing around here as they are either destroyed by artillery and bombs or the Germans burned them when they left. The town of Ostheim was completely burned out.
