Re: WWII and historys best sniper.
In the article it says he was charged with manslaughter and two of his subordinates were charged with premeditated murder. I can't believe SSG Bumgardner would fire on civilians. It must have been some kind of accident or trigger happy subordinates. Col Anthony B Herbert was his superior officer in the 173rd Airborne Brigade wrote a book "Soldier" that depicts the event differently. It also depicts other events involving other soldiers. None of it tarnishes my respect for Bumgardner.
