PRAISE PRAISE
Synopsis

Synopsis

The US Army infantry division was an intricate system of men and equipment welded together by doctrine and organization into an entity that could fight, maneuver, communicate within itself as well as with outside entities, and regenerate itself through a supply and replacement system. This book examines the organizational development, mobilization, deployment and combat actions of World War II US Army infantry divisions up until the end of 1943. Among the units covered are the separate infantry regiments and battalions of the standard type, showing how the Army's new triangular infantry division (based on three infantry regiments) evolved from the earlier square division (based on four).

Praise

"Hands down, great little reference title of this subject for the money, for the student or military enthusiast equally... This book provides a lot of invaluable information in a small amount of space, in an easy to read format, loads of really cool diagrams, charts and spec. tables, all tied together to give the reader a good understanding of the operations of the U.S. army Infantry Divisions of this era. Definitely recommended!" -Mark R. Smith, Historicus Forma (February 2006)
