Rothacker Childs Smith - Interview with Rothacker Childs Smith: clip: How he was wounded; after he was captured, being held in Sommocolonia; mortar shell injuring him and when he was being treated by a German medic, house next door hit by a 500-pound bomb; marched by Germans away from town; numb from the waist down and barely able to walk, counting off his progress in increments, knowing that if he stopped, he would be shot.
