The Nazis defending the town of Gelsenfeld reckoned they were sitting pretty. A treacherous swamp round one side of the town forced the Allies to advance from only one direction —and they had that direction covered by a line of machine‑gun nests. They boasted they could beat off any attack. But they didn’t know they had Corporal Alec Tracy up against them. Alec was no stranger to the swamps of Gelsenfeld, and neither was the man with him —Feldwebel Leo Pommerisch of the German Army. And these two were all set to smash their way through!
