While on patrol, the group that he was with encountered a German patrol, and an incoming grenade wounded him in the arm and Roderick Strohl slightly, while James Alley and Joe Lesniewski were wounded more severely. Alley had thirty-two wounds in his left side, face, neck, and arm, while Lesniewski got hit in the neck by shrapnel. Later after Easy Company commanding officer Richard Winters lead the charge up on the dike, the German artillery opened up on the crossroads and in return American artillery returned fire.
One of the American' shells exploded near Liebgott, wounding his elbow. He was noted by Winters as being an extremely good combat soldier and loyal friend.
However, Liebgott had a rather rough attitude towards prisoners. After the battle at the crossroads on "The Island", in October , Winters handed over 11 German prisoners to Liebgott to be taken back to the battalion command post. Liebgott was ordered to drop all his ammunition but one round, as to ensure that the German prisoners made it back.
Liebgott was described by fellow comrade David Kenyon Webster as being "pound Liebgott, ex-San Francisco cabby, was the skinniest and, at non-financial moments, one of the funniest men in E Company. He had the added distinction of being one of the few Jews in the paratroops".
After being sent to England to the hospital, Liebgott wanted to get back to the men; he requested and received a discharge from the hospital and returned to France. After fighting in Normandy and the Netherlands, Liebgott was nearing a breaking point at Bastogne, during the Battle of the Bulge. Winters pulled him off the line and made him his Command Post CP runner.
After a few days he returned to the line to be with his buddies, but Liebgott's feelings of stress and tension also returned.
