Washington, D.C. (1946): Infantry Journal Press. First Edition. Octavo. Item #027040

444 page. Profusely illustrated, maps on endpapers. The 104th fought through France, Belgium, and western Germany. It formed a vital link in the drive to the Maas River and the Roer River line. After crossing the Roer, they moved past Cologne and across the Rhine, fighting back several fierce German counterattacks as it advanced through the theater throughout late 1944 and 1945. The appendices list the several thousand who died as well as those missing in action, those who received honors, and a valuable section (pages 418ff) that detail how the division was laid out including its weapons. Several detailed maps including one on their move to the Maas River. They quote the Army times on the costly move into the industrial Ruhr Valley. This was the only combat duty that the 104th Infantry Division has served during its history. Bound in gray pictorial cloth lettered and decorated in black and green depicting a wolf and paw prints spine lettering black with green rulesupper corners bumped, some finger soiling. A very nice copy.
