US Infantryman in World War II by CSM.(Ret.) Robert S. Rush
Book DescriptionBetween 1940 and 1945 the US Army expanded from eight infantry divisions to 66. Although the majority of these soldiers were draftees, many had enlisted in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor. This title follows one soldier from Indiana, from his enlistment at the age of 18 in January 1942, through training in a replacement training centre, assignment to the newly formed 76th Division (AUS), and overseas with the 1st Battalion 133d Regiment, 34th Division (Red Bull). It takes him into the reality of daily life and combat in the Mediterranean theater in 1943-45 (Fondouk Pass, Hill 609, Salerno, Monte Cassino, Anzio and Lanuvio). Whilst the focus is on one hypothetical soldier, the generalities and experiences of the many are also examined and woven into the individual narrative thread.
