716th Railway Operating Battalion book

Recommended Posts

I just got this book for the 716th Railway Operating Battalion, scored off eBay.

It's also online: https://digicom.bpl.lib.me.us/...p;context=ww_reg_his
Company C of this unit was investigated by CID as entire trainloads of materiel were allowed to go 'missing', between D-Day and September 1944. Many of the enlisted men became riflemen and several officers went to Leavenworth.
I was very surprised to find out that included with the book, the box that it came in, which is also in very good shape. I've never seen one with a shipping box before, and now I know whose copy this is...
