incident was considered to be the worst WAR CRIME committed
against American soldiers in the western European Theatre of
WWII. Much has been written & published about this event but
only a very few authors have included mention of my relative.
So I have written his story giving him the full recognition he
deserves. This story provides a detailed account of T/4 Sgt.Cecil J.Cash's tragic demise when he along with 80+ other
American soldiers were brutally murdered by Nazis on the second
day of the Battle of the Bulge. This is the TRUE
story of Sgt. Cash of the 197th Anti-Aircraft Artillery,
Automatic Weapons Battalion. Sgt. Cash of St. Francois County,
Missouri, USA, is my step-father by way of being the first
husband of my mother Pearl Martin Cash Ziock Foree of Washington
County, Missouri. Sgt. Cash's military history begins at
Jefferson Barracks in St. Louis & covers his two year tour of
duty through five states, two continents, & six countries. The
story includes excerpts from Sgt. Cash's personal correspondence
with his wife as he forges his way through France, Belgium &
Luxembourg with thousands of other American soldiers liberating
Europe from Hitler's evil Nazi Regime & bringing an end to the
Holocaust & the Third Reich. Published in the "Independent
Journal" July -
