In August, 1944, U.S. Army Lt. Robert Hamsley led a five-tank platoon into the French village of Plelo and wiped out a contingent of heavily armed Germans. Two days later, German anti-tank guns knocked out four of the five tanks and damaged Hamsley's own M-4 before he and the three crew members recovered. They destroyed the attack guns, killed and routed about 100 Germans and rescued the wounded. The second action earned Hamsley the Bronze Star and a promotion to captain.
