Danger Forward: the First Division in World War II

The US First Division (The “Big Red One”) fought from Algeria to Sicily, and from Normandy to beyond Remagen. It made no less than three assault landings on enemy-held coasts (especially Omaha Beach on D-Day).  This account of their exploits is told, in part and importantly, by those who were there. It is an excellent account of the division’s operations with many “As I saw it” accounts which fill out the account of military operations. Of great value in understanding what the Americans did in making their very important contribution to the Allied victory over Germany.
