During World War I, Conti fought in France under Gen. Pershing, alongside Nathaniel Burrows. Years later, he would later meet Burrows' son in Belgium.

After Captain McKay's death, Able Company was assigned to Mortain, with the task of defending it. During that night, the 7th German Army attacked Mortain, but Able company repulsed the German troops; at dawn, Dog company (116th ID) arrived with a 2nd Armored Division unit. Together, Dog and Able destroyed the supporting German Flak 88 guns and stopped Operation Luttich.

After the counterattack around Mortain, Able Company's men, with the support of an M26 Pershing, hunted Shultz's Tiger Tank at Autry and destroyed it. Mckay's death was finally avenged. At the end, Able Company led the final Allied assault around Chambois, alongside the Canadian and the Polish Army. Together, they form a barrier and stop the German retreat, as well as repulsing the following counterattack.
