During the invasion of Southern France Flab never seeks shelter, walks straight against the incomimg bullets. His comrades think that he is suicidal, maybe a hero; it turns out that he is a sleepwalker.
n 1944 the Americans invaded the French Riviera. after in the Italian campaign they fought an impossible war in Anzio, Italy.
The French countryside looked anything but Southern California.Clouds kept visibility low when they moved close to the shores with the landing crafts and the naval guns began to pound coastline.
Once ashore, ready to run into Germans , they ran into unexpected silence instead.
Flab never avoided bullets, he walked straight, never looked for shelter. Some guys shouted at him,
"Get down you half-wit!"
Others thought that he was suicidal and there was no way to hold him back. He kept walking against the incoming fire, he was a miracle. maybe a hero, or crazy.†††
