Many Artifacts of Seargents York's epic battle with German Troops near the Meuse Argonne in 1918 have been found,
The Items includes Many 3006 and 45 ACP cases found in the area of rhe historic fight.
I will Post more on this and , hopefully, some battlefield forensic hopology from other battlefields
Later critic have sought to debunk York's story of killing and capturing so many veteran German troops, though, as is the Guy Gabaldin Affair 30 years later on Saipan, the troop seem to have been at the point where they where ready to be persuaded to surrender. To say this this mass surrender was unusual in the Japanese Army is a tremendous understatement.
Gabaldin was raised by Nisei to which he was not related and spoke, anecdotally, perfect Japanese.
He simply wished to stop the senseless deaths.
Gabaldin appeared on a 1950's game show where three unidentified individuals sat while a description of their exploits (or lack thereof, but not so in this case).
As I recall the 'panel" could not identify Gabaldin.
