The following eyewitness account has been written by Gifford B. Doxsee about 20 years ago. He was born in the U.S in 1924 and served during World War II in the 106th InFantry Division . His division was to be sent to a 'quiet' sector of the front. A short while after the division appeared at the front, the Germans launched their wellknown 'Battle of the Bulge' in December 1944.
This chronicles will essentially be about Mr. Doxsee's experiences during the 'Battle of the Bulge' and his time as a prisoner of war.
For two years a member of STIWOT has maintained intensive contact with Mr. Doxsee. Partly because of this contact the eyewithness account is made available to STIWOT. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Doxsee again for making his story available to us.
