Synopsis: In the first of a two-volume study, the author presents an extremely detailed record of the organisation, doctrine and equipment of U.S. Army infantry divisions during the latter part of World War II. The second volume will provide capsule histories for all U.S. Army infantry divisions during this period. After examining the state of the U.S. Army during the 1940-43 period, Yves Bellanger focuses on the 1943-45 period, and presents each of the division's sub-units - from the divisional HQ to an infantry battalion, from the divisional artillery to its combat engineer element. For each, the author examines their organisation (down to the lowest level possible), their training and tactical doctrine, and the equipment, vehicles and weapons they used. The first volume concludes with a comprehensive set of appendices, including sample command rosters.
About the Author: Yves J. Bellanger was born in 1953. He has a master's degree in philosophy, but discovered history well before this. War, as a subject, occupied a large part of his life in philosophy as much as in history. His interest in the USA, and its military history, has led him to concentrate on studying the US Army from 1940 to the present. The lack of books regarding its organisation spurred him on to write his own; meeting veterans, he has dedicated his researches to their memory. He looks for the role of man in war, through its organisation and doctrine. Yves is married to Cathy, and has four children; the family live in Angers.
