Quote
They are a rough, young-looking bunch of men, in a ragtag of various uniforms, German, Italian, American, and British. They are friendly to us, but wary. Odd that most of the underground in German-occupied countries were Communists. The only ones with much discipline and the guts. They help us through mine fields and are our Allies.

— Medic Lathrop Mitchell of the 92nd Infantry Division on partisans
