About this title
In the first of a two-volume study, the author presents an extremely detailed record of the Organisation, doctrine and equipment of US Army infantry divisions during the latter part of World War II. The second volume will provide capsule histories for all US Army infantry divisions during this period.
After examining the state of the US 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, in addition to listing all the equipment, vehicles and weapons they were issued with.
The first volume concludes with a comprehensive set of appendices, including sample command rosters.
No equivalent book is available which covers the 1943-45 US Army infantry divisions in comparable detail
An extraordinarily-detailed guide - lists ALL equipment issued to ALL elements of the infantry division, from an infantry battalion's HQ company, to the division's military police platoon, thus including much information on rear-area units usually ignored or forgotten
Includes a large number of organizational charts, plus detailed sample command rosters
As well as tactical doctrine, covered in detail, drawing extensively on contemporary US field manuals
The author received extensive assistance from US veterans in writing this book
An essential reference for re-enactors, modelers, war gamers, researchers and anyone who requires a detailed guide to the US Army during the 1943-45 period
Born in 1953, Yves J. Bellanger has a Master's degree in Philosophy, but he discovered history well before this. War, as a subject, occupied a large part of his researches in philosophy as much as in history. The lack of books regarding the organization of the U.S. Army during World War Two spurred him to write a first book about the organization of the Infantry Division. He continues on this subject with a series of books on the Armored Division. Meeting veterans, and being member of American veteran associations, he dedicated his researches to their memories.
