Baton Rouge: The 75th Infantry Division / Army & Navy Publishing Company, 1946. Rowe, John S. First Edition. Large Hardcover. Very Good / No Jacket. Item #2296441
Original platoon photograph signed by dozens of members of the 75th Infantry Division (and noting their home towns) laid in, along with a Remember Pearl Harbor soldier 'diary' detailing the service of a soldier in the division. A couple faint spots to boards, otherwise an excellent copy. Soldiers who signed included: Pearson C. Schiller; Sgt. Chitwood; Domenico J. Scatena; George T. Wingard, Jr.; Mike Stirling, Jr.; Paul Toman; Joe LaPointe; Lowell E. Murphy; 'myself' (probably Nathan Hena, who signed the Pearl Harbor sheet); Jack M. Reese; Robert N. Dugal; Joseph A. Buzogany; Robert T. Berkebile; Joseph W. Lasley; Grover E. Hardy; Douglas Huff; William C. Woodward; Ivan C. Else; Francis Quinn; G.L. Mae; Calvin W. Hood; Howard L. Marshall; Chester Kalm; Delwyn P. Goodyear; Sgt. Adams; Walter J. Clausius Jr.; John J. Long; Morton L. Plesser; Ridley W. Meek; Richard H. Phillips; Jerry H. Steward; Harry S. Singer; William H. Fleming; Platton Sgt. Smith (the sergeants' names are all in pencil in the same hand, so they were probably written in by the owner of the book). Some names are numbered to correspond with the photo, others are marked as 'not present for picture'.
Unpaginated. Black-and-white photographs throughout, depicting the service of the 75th Infantry Division toward the end of World War II.
