"Appointment At Hill1205"
Ernie Pyle & Captain Henry T. Waskow
"Sergeant Willie B. Slaughter of Company B described the deadly game of hide-and-seek played among the rocks:
One time on Hill 1205, one of the men in our company, Private Twanda. W. Nobles . . . and a German sniper were having a private shooting duel. They were crawling around in the rocks and every time one would stick his head out, the other would start shooting. They looked like a couple of lizards crawling in those rocks. To me, having a ringside seat, it was rather humorous to hear Nobles shouting, "Where is the son-of-a-bitch."
