Book review from a friend...

 

Marion:

 

I ordered a book recently through Amazon.com entitled US Combat Engineer 1941-45 and I did not see it listed in your website section of “Books, Magazines, and Videos.” Just thought I would let you know. I found it to be a decent overview of the subject (in 64 pages) with lots of good photos and beautiful original artwork.

 

And by the way, I absolutely loved No Bridge Too Far. Great, great stuff, Marion. If it is possible to wear out DVDs, I am well on my way given the number of times I have watched the very interesting account of what my Dad endured. It has brought visuals and background to the stories he told me.

I have it. I got it last year on pre-order. It's not GREAT, in fact, a great deal of it is generic Army info they use as filler.It is a good starter and reference book. :)
