Gothic Line

Ronald Oba

Attached to the 92nd Infantry Division, the 442nd is ordered to break the seemingly impenetrable Gothic Line – German fortifications built into the 3000-feet high Apennine Mountains.

After delivering rations to an outpost in Cuneo, Ronald and two other soldiers are thrown out of their jeep when it hits an embankment. He is sent to an aid station where his head and back are topically treated with Mercurochrome.
