Joseph Robertson was an infantryman in the U.S. Army during World War II, and he fought in the Battle of the Bulge. The stark black and white images in this short haunt the viewer — just as Robertson is haunted still by his memories of that battle. Germans in the Woods will be broadcast after Wo Ai Ni Mommy and Off and Running.
