Bob Levine was among the first replacements in the 90th Infantry Division in Normandy. He was wounded and captured in the battle for Hill 122, and had a leg amputated by a German doctor. Decades later, with the help of historian Henri Levaufre of Perier, Bob was able to meet the family of the German physician.
Bob's interview is included in my collection of prisoner of war interviews, and his story is in my book They Were All Young Kids, about Lieutenant Jim Flowers and Hill 122, which also is the subject of several earlier episodes of the podcast.
