In this real audio recordings a member of the legendary “Band of Brothers”, 506th Easy Company 101st Airborne, explains how they forced captured German soldiers to talk. Their methods would be considered unacceptable in today’s politically correct world and may leave you shocked. It’s important to remember that, while their methods may be considered outlandish by today’s standards, these men were in a life and death battle against the Nazi and Axis powers. The Americans were stationed less than a football field away from their enemies and time was of the essence.
In the audio footage the speaker explains what they were instructed to do in order to strike fear into the hearts of the captured germans to get them to “spill the beans”. He facetiously claims to “not remember” whether or not they carried out the act. He states:
“We may have used a little force. There was a way that we were told it could be done, But whether we did it or not I really don’t remember…”
