In the process of this battle we took about 18 or 19 German prisoners. A young man approximately 24 years of age turned to me, and in a voice completely accent-free, he said, "Where are you from?" I said, "I'm from the United States." "Where... in the United States?" "The Northeast," I said. "Where Northeast?" I said, "I'm from Connecticut." "Where in Connecticut?" He was persisting. I said "Yes, I'm from Waterbury, Connecticut." "Ah, yes," he said, "Waterbury, at the junction of the Naugatuck and Mad Rivers." Now you have to know a bit about the area. The Naugatuck is a fairly substantial river, but the Mad River is a little stream that you can jump across without any trouble. Anyone who knew this... I was puzzled. I said, "How did you possibly know that?" He said, "I was in training for the administration." "The administration of what?" I said. He said, "The administration of the territories." My blood ran cold. I couldn't imagine that Hitler, in his wildest imagination, not only had figured he practically had Europe in his grasp, but he also figured that he would control America, too.
