Another estate sale find.  Not in the greatest condition, but has 32 pages of fact filled text and pictures of one of Patton's proudest armored divisions.  Enjoy.

hirsca,

 

A nice booklet printed by Stars and Stripes, the GI Stories series. These were souvenir booklets that gave a very quick unit history of the particular unit. Each booklet's centerfold was a route map of their advance through Europe. There were 53 of these booklets on some of the infantry, armor, and Air Force units in Europe.. These are quite collectible, and some quite pricey..

 

Nice pick up.

 

Leigh

Thanks Leigh.  I have had several of these over the years, but have either sold or traded all of them.  This one was interesting to me since it did not follow the division to the end of the war.  But what a way to finish the booklet--the victory at Bastogne.

 

Thanks again,

Al
