Army at Dawn - recommended book
#1

While I was at the 36th Combat Engineers reunion, several of the members highly recommended the book, Army at Dawn. So this weekend I visited Alibris Books and ordered it. I will give a synopsis on the book once I read it.

 

This World War II history focuses on the North African campaign, which was, at first, very difficult and costly to the American soldiers and their commanders (Eisenhower, Patton, Bradley, et. al.). This learning ground toughened up the Americans, and prepared them for the European campaign.

 

I also ordered the book, First Across the Rhine: the 291st Engineer Combat Battalion in France, Belgium, and Germany.
