The Fighting Irish

Sunday, Nov. 7, 1943

It was not a quiet day, either on the battlefront or the Home Front. In the Pacific, Allied soldiers on the Solomon Islands found caves filled dead Japanese soldiers. The Allies counted 1500, at least, before sealing the caves. On the Eastern Front Russia reported that the Nazis had killed up to 135,000 men, women, children – both civilians and combatants. While carnage dominated the battle fields, Nazi prisoners of war in Colorado had recreated a version of a German homeland complete with beer gardens. For Americans, sports provided a welcome distraction as 76,000 gathered to watch Notre Dame play Army. The Fighting Irish routed Army 26-0.
