About this title


As a lively account of a little-known unit in the vast panorama of World War II, this book is valuable in its picture of the training for the amphibious assault on Oran in November 1942, its details of day-to-day life in the field, and its eyewitness portraits of Major General Terry Allen and Brigadier General Teddy Roosevelt Jr.
