Freedom Fighters: Bill Robertson

     Five major battles, freed prisoners, and a "pocket pup" are only a few of Bill Robertson's experiences In World War Two.  Robertson's five major battles include the Normandy landing. Battle for Northern France, the Battle of the Bulge, the Rhine River crossing, and the Rhine Battle.

     Robertson's 51st Engineer Combat Battalion was also the first group to free prisoners at the infamous Dachau Concentration Camp.  Among the many lives Robertson helped save was that of a little orphan Dachund puppy who lived in Robertson's pocket until the war ended.
