Book - Five Years, Four Fronts
#1

Memoirs of Georg Grossjohann, an infantryman who rose from the enlisted ranks

to regimental command in combat who fought on 4 different fronts from `41 - `44.

Of interest to this forum is the accounts of action in Southern France of the

(Germ) 198Div. stationed near the spanish border in spring of `44, the battle at

Montelimar, and the retreat up the Rhone valley to the Vosges against VI Corps.

I found it fairly well written with brutaly honest accounts of the experience of a soldier.

It`s available on amazon.com for $6.99 in paperback, $14.95 hardcover

Since we are talking about Southern France I shall say, merci beaucoup! Thanks for the recommendation, as I am trying to collect any book that has references to VI Corps' advance. I shall make that purchase today. :pdt34:

Hello M-

Take a close look at the DVDs I mailed to you (yesterday) when it arrives The US Army in Italy WWII. It's not a book, but there is footage of engineers in it and it covers every major battle in Italy! :pdt34: I am sure you'll enjoy it..
