Baker's introductionEdit

You really start to notice the quirks a person has when you think he might be dead in a week. I remember the first time I saw Leggett. It was in the breakfast tent. He was cutting a hard boiled egg into small pieces with a ham. It occurred to me at this point I had never in my twenty-three years of existence seen a man cut an egg into slices like that. I don't know why I remember that.


Mac, Baker, and Leggett are standing outside the gate of the French Woman's house.

Mac: There's an AA gun over there, we have to take it out.

Mac knocks the door down, breaking its hinges.

Leggett: Are you gonna pay for that? You just broke her damn gate!

Mac: Leggett, shove a sock in it.

Mac, Baker, and Leggett go around the back of the house, head to the left (north) and stop at a hedgerow. In the distance, they could see a C-47 plane in flames and a couple of German soldiers.

Mac: Baker, get down and stand by to fire. Don't fire till I do.

Mac opens fire on one of the German soldiers.

Mac: I need fire on those Krauts!

Baker and Leggett suppress the German soldiers.

Mac: I'll flank 'em. You keep up the fire!

Mac flanks to the right and finishes the German soldiers off. Suddenly, Leggett notices more German soldiers near the C-47.

Leggett: More Krauts over there! Baker! We gotta get around them!

Baker follows Leggett down the wall, flanks the Germans, and finishes them. Baker grabs a German K98 rifle after they cut down the German soldiers.

Mac, Baker, and Leggett stop, as if in a daze, and gaze at the C-47.

Leggett: Poor bastards. We should help them. Maybe there are still some alive! What do we do?

Mac: There's nothing we can do.

Leggett: But Sarge--

Mac: Keep moving Leggett!

Mac, Baker, and Leggett head east and encounter five German soldiers coming out of a truck. They quickly cut them down and start heading northeast, where they could hear the AA gun going off.

Mac: There's an AA gun over there, we have to take it out.

Mac, Baker, and Leggett slowly approach the AA gun.

Mac: Don't fire till I do.

After a few seconds, the AA gun had to be reloaded and Mac opened up with his M1A1 Thompson submachine gun at one of the two German soldiers. Baker cut down the other one.

Mac: Baker, plant the satchel charge on that gun.

Baker got out his satchel charge and placed it on the AA gun. Ten seconds later, the charges detonated. The explosion was so loud that two Germans in a nearby farmhouse could hear it. The German soldiers quickly opened up and Mac, Baker, and Leggett immediately returned fire. After Mac, Baker, and Leggett cut down the Germans in the farmhouse, they enter through it, and attempted to sneak-attack on the second AA gun. However, the Germans saw them sneaking by and started opening up.

Mac: Hit the dirt!

Leggett: I think they saw us!

Mac: Well no shit!

Mac, Baker, and Leggett keep suppressing fire on the German soldiers.

Mac: Baker, get around them. We have to get a flank on them!

Baker flanked around the German soldiers and eventually reached the AA gun, where three German soldiers were defending it. Seconds later, the firefight ceased with Mac, Baker, and Leggett victorious.

Mac: Baker, disable that gun with some TNT so we can get the hell out of here.

Baker placed a second satchel charge on the AA gun, which detonated ten seconds later. Afterwards, they meet up with each other.

Mac: We can't stop to rest now. The 4th Infantry Division ("ID" is what Mac says) is coming up through Utah Beach, and there are Germans all over that area. Let's move.

Chapter ends.
