An American Knight (A Tank Destroyer Story) Paperback
by Commander US Navy Retired Victor "Tory" Failmezger (Author) , US Army Retired LTC Tim Stoy (Foreword)

Click here to go to the page
This book is the story of a young Lieutenant, Thomas Peter Welch, in the 601st Tank Destroyer Battalion during World War II. The story of the 601st TD BN is told in Tommy's more than 150 letters from the front and the unpublished memoirs and diaries of the men who were there. The book follows the Battalion from stateside training to North Africa, the withdrawal at the Kasserine Pass, and on to victory over Rommel at El Guetter. The Battalion was part of the invasion of Italy at Salerno and crossed the Volturno on the road to Cassino. Landing at Anzio, they became trapped on the beachhead for four months until the breakout and the liberation of Rome. They were first ashore for the "Forgotten D-Day" in Southern France and were there for the resultant battles against winter and the SS in the Vosges Mountains, and smashing the Colmar Pocket. At the end, they crossed the Siegfried Line and raced across Germany to Hitler's Eagle Nest. "An American Knight" contains period maps and hundreds of illustrations, many from private collections and never before published. It is 480 pages, with hundreds of footnotes, 12 appendices and a twenty-plus page bibliography. Signed copies of this special unabridged author's edition are available from the author.

The 3rd Infantry Division developed an outstanding reputation for aggressiveness and combat effectiveness in World War II.  In its 10 campaigns in North Africa, the Mediterranean Theater, and in Europe the Rock of the Marne spent 531 days in combat, incurred 25,977 casualties, had 41 Medal of Honor recipients (the most of any division in WWII), and was decorated with the highest unit awards by the United States (the Presidential Unit Citation) and by France (the Croix-de-Guerre).

Combat units of World War II were comprised of men.  It is the men of the 3rd Infantry Division and its attached units who earned that outstanding reputation, with their blood, their sweat, and their courage through innumerable fights in all conditions of weather and terrain.  The most famous of those men are the division’s Medal of Honor recipients – their stories were told in the press and have been kept alive in books which are still sold today.  However, countless other brave men fought in this war, many died with their heroism unseen and thus unremarked, others received lesser awards for heroism which fellow soldiers would know to respect but which do not carry the caché the Medal of Honor does, while all who survived the war worked hard to establish a sense of normalcy after the trauma they experienced.  Their stories also deserve to be told. 

Tory Failmezger does this with his book on his uncle, 1 LT Peter “Tommy” Welch.  Reading the chapters on his combat service Tommy Welch fit right in in this aggressive combat division.  He was the kind of soldier that 3rd Infantry Division Commander Major General John Wilson “Iron Mike” O’Daniel wanted, the kind who would take the fight to the enemy, who would accept risk in order to bring the war to an end more quickly.  It was kill or be killed, and Tommy Welch was good at it and lucky.  Tory has brought his uncle back to life, using his war time letters he paints a clear picture of a confident, maybe even cocky, young American fighting man. 

Tory also takes us back in time, with his extensive use of period materials, to provide us a better understanding of the Army of WWII, and the America of those times.  Almost 70 years have passed since the war ended, very few of the Greatest Generation are still among us, and few younger Americans have had the privilege of knowing a WWII veteran.  The America of the 1940s doesn’t exist anymore, and it is difficult to put ourselves into the shoes of the men and women who rose to the occasion to defeat Nazism in Europe and preserved American freedom while aiding the Nations of Europe to regain their liberty. 

Tommy’s post-war years show a restless man who appears to have been unable to come to closure with the sudden end to his part in the war.  He seems to have been a man who found himself while mastering the challenges and the risks of combat.  After the intense combat he experienced it is clear little in a peaceful world, in a tidy civilian existence, could provide him the adrenaline rush he needed and only experienced in combat.  In today’s America it is probable many young men returning to civilian life after time in Iraq and/or Afghanistan face the same challenge. 

Tory is extremely fortunate to have spent time with Tommy – what college kid would not love an uncle who would show him the ropes in the necessary, if not always openly discussed, social skills of young men?  And we are extremely fortunate that Tory has chosen to share his deep affection for his uncle with us through this lovingly written and well-researched book.  I highly recommend this book to our members as it accurately pictures what life was like in the tank destroyers in WWII.    


A Cause Greater than Self:
The Journey of Captain Michael J. Daly,
World War II Medal of Honor Recipient
(Williams-Ford Texas A&M University Military History Series)

by Stephen J. Ochs (Sep 1, 2012)

My book on Captain Michael J. Daly of A Company, 15th Infantry Regiment, who received the Medal of Honor for his actions on April 18, 1945, in Nuremberg will be released on September 1. It is published by Texas A&M University Press and is entitled A Cause Greater Than Self: The Journey of Michael J. Daly, WWII Medal of Honor Recipient. It is available at and Barnes and As you know, I had the privilege of interviewing Mike Daly many times. He and I became good friends and we spoke three or four times a week over the course of a six year period. He was one of the best men I have ever known. In eleven months of combat from Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944, to April 19, 1945 in Nuremberg where he was severely wounded, Mike's gallantry resulted in two Purple Hearts, a Bronze Star with "V" for valor, three Silver Stars, the Medal of Honor and went from private to captain and company commander. And all before reaching the age of twenty-one! A Company became known as "Daly Company" in his honor. I hope that you enjoy the book and that I do justice to Mike's memory. Thank you for all of your help on this project.
P.S. My Facebook site has a lot of information about Mike and the book, including many photographs. You can view it at Steve Ochs!/steve.ochs.14

Making John a Soldier:
A Nebraskan Goes to War [Paperback]

John Malloy Sr (Author)
The author, born in Nebraska in 1923 after struggling through the depression years of the Desperate Thirties volunteered for military service in 1942. I subsequently fought in the Ardennes, Rhineland, and Central Europe campaigns and earned the Combat Infantry Badge and was honored with the Bronze Star with the V for Valor emblem.
Book Description
Publication Date: November 13, 2011
"Making John a Soldier A Nebraskan Goes to War" describes the life and trials of some of the 16,000,000 Americans who fought freedom's battle in World War II- the group Tom Brocaw dubbed " The Greatest Generation."

The book describes how World War II engulfed the author's life from his enlistment in 1942 until his discharge three years later. It includes highlights of life changing experiences the author encountered as an infantry rookie training in California's desert in 1943 to the role he later played helping crush Hitler's minions.

The book is more than a history of one person or one infantry division. Rather it describes key battle actions of Army units in both the Pacific and European theaters, as well as pivotal Marine and Naval engagements in the Pacific. It examines the titanic Russian and German struggles from Germany's invasion of Russia in June 1941 to the Soviet's final conquest of Berlin in 1945. Thirty maps depict settings where crucial battles were fought in both the European and Pacific theaters.

The book often focuses on the individual warrior who fought alone against a determined and brutal enemy. The book delineates strategy dictated by the most senior command, guiding battle action of friend and foe alike. "Making John A Soldier" provides a view of the uncelebrated sacrifices and bravery of the ordinary American GI during World War II. It recounts the heroic exploits of a special group-seven Nebraskans awarded the Medal of Honor.

The exploits of the 3d Infantry Division are well documented in this book . These include its part in the Torch invasion in North Africa in November 1942,the invasion of Sicily, and the battle at the Anzio Beachhead. There follows a review of the invasion of Southern France, followed by the bloody fight in Colmar driving the last Germans back across the Rhine River.

The book, however, is more than a history of one person or one infantry division. It describes key battle actions in both the Pacific and European theaters. It also examines selected Russian and German battles from Germany’s invasion of Russia in June 1941 to the Soviet’s conquest of Berlin in 1945. Thirty maps depict settings where crucial battles were fought in both Europe and the Pacific.

Many of the 3d infantry Division Veterans and their children and grandchildren will enjoy learning more about the exploits of the 3d Division in World War II while also learning how this division's brave warriors overcame a determined and ruthless enemy.

A Letter Marked Free:
A Powerful and Gripping Account of a Combat Soldier in WWII [Paperback]
Robert Lynch (Author)
A Letter Marked Free is the true story of a young combat soldier on the battlefield in World War II as told through his letters home to his family. The letters powerfully portray life on the front lines and the vivid accounts reveal the intense hardships endured for the cause of freedom.

Bob Lynch was nineteen and living in Rye, NY, when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. He enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in the 3rd Infantry Division as a combat rifleman, light machine-gunner, and mortarman. Bob was wounded and missing in action (MIA) behind enemy lines for over 10 days. He received the Bronze Star, Purple Heart, and Combat Infantryman Badge, along with many other honors. He participated in first-wave amphibious assault landings on Anzio, Italy, and St. Tropez, France, and accumulated an incredible 350 days in frontline combat.

Bob was awarded the French Legion of Honor in January 2007 in recognition and gratitude for his role in the liberation of France. He received France's highest decoration "for outstanding valor and service during WWII." Previously, he had been awarded the French Croix de Guerre with Palm twice and coveted fourragere.

Outpost Kelly: A Tanker's Story [Paperback]

Jack R. Siewert (Author), Paul M Edwards (Foreword)

Price: $19.95
In Stock.
Ships from and sold by Gift-wrap available.

Book Description

October 28, 2006
In the second year of the Korean War, Jack Siewert commanded a platoon of five M-46 tanks. Temporarily assigned to provide fire support for an infantry battalion on the front, he eventually found himself in the midst of intense fighting for a relatively unknown and unimportant hill, code named Outpost Kelly.
Those four days of battle against Chinese forces form the heart of this memoir, which is unique in its focus on the hill fighting that dominated two thirds of the Korean War. Trained to take advantage of his tanks’ mobility, his orders—to provide direct fire support for advancing infantry—along with the mountainous terrain and the torrential monsoon rains that created shin-deep fields of impenetrable mud, forced him to abandon doctrine and improvise.
At the height of the fighting, Siewert was able to bring to bear the guns from only one of his five tanks against the enemy. Nevertheless, his platoon played a key role in allowing members of the 15th Infantry to retake Outpost Kelly, and he offers an excellent analysis of how theory and experience come together in a point-of-the-spear military situation.
Siewert's platoon played a key role in allowing members of the 15th Infantry to retake Outpost Kelly, and he offers an excellent analysis of how theory and experience come together in a point-of-the-spear military situation. Outpost Kelly also paints a fascinating picture of the type of fighting, often overlooked, that characterized the second and third years of the Korean War. With truce talks proceeding in Panmunjom, both sides fought to claim incremental pieces of real estate along the demarcation line between North and South.
In the grand scheme of the war, the battle for Outpost Kelly might not ahce meant much. But for 3rd Infantry Division, and the men, like Jack Siewert, who fought there, it was the entire focal point of the war during the last four days of July, 1952.

"On July 11, 1943, General Lucian Truscott received the Army’s second-highest decoration, the Distinguished Service Cross, for valor in action in Sicily. During his career he also received the Army Distinguished Service Medal with Oak Leaf Cluster, the Navy Distinguished Service Medal, the Legion of Merit, and the Purple Heart. Truscott was one of the most significant of all U.S. Army generals in World War II, pioneering new combat training methods, including the famous “Truscott Trot," and excelling as a combat commander, who turned the 3d Infantry Division into one of the finest divisions in the U.S. Army. He was instrumental in winning many of the most important battles of the war, participating in the invasions of North Africa, Sicily, Anzio, and southern France. Both peers and 'dogfaces,' i.e., common soldiers, respected Truscott, and General Eisenhower ranked him second only to George S. Patton Jr. as a field army commander.

"Yet no definitive history of his life has been compiled. Wilson Heefner corrects that with the first authoritative biography of this distinguished American military leader. Heefner has undertaken impressive research in primary sources—as well as interviews with family members and former associates—to shed new light on this overlooked hero. He presents Truscott as a soldier who was shaped by his upbringing, civilian and military education, family life, friendships, and evolving experiences as a commander both in and out of combat.

"Heefner’s brisk narrative explores Truscott’s thirty–year Army career and defines his roles in key operations. It also examines Truscott’s postwar service as military governor of Bavaria, particularly his role in improving living conditions for Jewish displaced persons, removing Nazis from civil government, and assisting in the trials of German war criminals. And it offers the first comprehensive examination of his subsequent career in the Central Intelligence Agency, where he served as senior CIA representative in West Germany during the early days of the Cold War, and later as CIA Director Allen Dulles’s deputy director for coordination in Washington.

"Dogface Soldier is a portrait of a man who earned a reputation for being honest, forthright, fearless, and aggressive, both as a military officer and in his personal life—a man who, at the dedication ceremony for the Anzio–Nettuno American cemetery in 1945, turned away from the crowd and faced the thousands of crosses stretching before him to address those buried there. Heefner has written a definitive biography of a great soldier and patriot."

About the Author
Wilson A. Heefner, a retired physician, lives in Stockton, California. He retired from the U.S. Army in the grade of colonel after forty-one years of service as an enlisted man, infantry officer, and medical officer in the Regular Army, Army National Guard, and U.S. Army Reserve. He is the author of Twentieth Century Warrior: The Life and Service of Major General Edwin D. Patrick and Patton's Bulldog: The Life and Service of General Walton H. Walker.

A Kid from Pittsburgh by Marion Rosen
With Morris Rosen

I first conceived the idea for a biography about my husband’s early years from age 13 to20 while touring Europe in 1994 for the 50th anniversary of D-Day. For this journey, World War II veterans from the U.S. Army’s Third Division traveled over the same paths they’d covered 50 years earlier in 1944 while struggling to take back territory seized by Hitler.
By witnessing the incredible obstacles our troops had to overcome first-hand, I instinctively understood that these men had gone through much more than the history books have reported. My husband, Morris Rosen, usually chose to talk about only a few incidents that were, at times, hilariously funny, but I wanted to delve deeper. I talked to the veterans and chronicled their stories. I especially wanted to know more about the almost-unbelievable events that still caused my husband and the rest of the men to grow teary-eyed so many years later.
As I learned the unadulterated story of the war from a private’s perspective, I also came to understand the heartbreak of a mere boy who’d run away from a wretched home life to go off to war at 17.
War is never an easy topic to grasp, but A KID FROM PITTSBURGH is sensitive yet out-spoken. Rowdy, yet gentle. Brutal circumstances are made comprehensible. War is interpreted by a kid who grew up without even realizing it.


“Marion Rosen’s biography on husband, WWII hero Morris Rosen in her A KID FROM PITTSBURGH is a story that no Hollywood screenwriter could create. This is a must read for everyone.”
Roger Corman, Award winning filmmaker

“While Audie Murphy is perhaps the most renowned WWII hero it would be hard not to include Morris Rosen as someone high up on this list. Corporal Rosen was an amazing young man who performed miracles during WWII in putting his life on the line in the most dangerous situations imaginable.”
Edward Janke, Retired U.S. Army Colonel

"THE KID FROM PITTSBURGH is a book I just couldn’t put down. Marion Rosen’s biography on her husband is a slam dunk."
Bob Cousy, Hall of Fame basketball legend

Howitzers, Grasshoppers, and the Holy Right Hand (Paperback)
by John Niesel (Author)

When he enlisted in the United States Army Artillery six months prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor, Harold Brown couldn't possibly have known what fate had in store for him. Traveling from the high plains of Colorado to the battlefields of Europe, Harold experienced the war as many American GI's did, enduring its trials and horrors, hoping for the day when he could finally come home. Unlike most GI's in World War II however, Harold would have the opportunity to touch history, and in doing so, he would play a part in the recovery of the most important national symbols of Hungary: the Holy Right Hand and the Crown of St. Stephen. Illustrated with over 160 relevant photographs, and printed in an easy-to-read format, Harold's recounting of his service covers many of the major battles in the ETO. Harold was awarded the Air Medal and the Bronze Star for his service, and it is an honor to share his story with you.

    Takedown: The 3rd Infantry Division's Twenty-One Day Assault on Baghdad (Hardcover)
    by Jim Lacey (Author)

    This is easily the most interesting account of the invasion of Iraq yet written and it covers not only the American perspective on the fighting, but also the Iraqi's viewpoint (based on interviews with Iraqi generals). Virtually every other history I have read has totally overlooks the contribution the 3rd Infantry Division made to the fight and until now they were in danger of being the forgotten piece of the war. This is a bit surprising since the 3rd ID did most of the fighting on the march up - far surpassing the amount of contact the Marines faced (though their performance was also spectacular).
    No matter what you may think of the right or wrong of our involvement in Iraq or what has happened since the invasion, there is no doubt that the actual assault from Kuwait to Baghdad was brilliantly executed and deserves to be recorded as one of the greatest military operations in American history. Takedown tell this story in magnificent fashion and captures this often harrowing fight in incredible detail. I walked away from it with a new respect for the American soldier and our Army.... A great read that I recommend to all!

    Hitler's Mountain:
    The Fuhrer, the Obersalzberg And the American Occupation of Berchtesgaden (Hardcover)
    by Arthur H. Mitchell (Author)

    Adolf Hitler owed his success to his remarkable ability to capture the hearts of the German people. That ability was largely due to his skill at creating a public persona, not only as a man of determination and effectiveness, but as a visionary and prophet. To develop the latter image he associated himself with the Bavarian Alps, where his retreat in Obersalzberg became almost a magical cave from which he was able, with a wave of his wand, to manipulate public opinion. This work examines the political events that took place in Obersalzberg from the 1920s until the U.S. Army returned control of the area to the German government in 1995. Concentrating primarily on the years during which Hitler was in residence, it discusses the geography, history and climate of Berchtesgaden (a town located in the Bavarian Alps and home to Obersalzberg) as well as Hitler's original acquaintance with the area. In a wider scope, however, the work focuses on the symbolism of identity and public perception as it relates to the place, setting and lifestyle of political figures. Such symbolism was especially important for Hitler as he deliberately and ruthlessly perfected his public image in his quest for control of the German government. The closing chapter follows Berchtesgaden through its military occupation after the Nazi defeat in 1945.

    Act 2: WWII
    The Adventures of Bruce Monkman

    A sheltered, naive, and undereducated young man, with few prospects and from a sleepy small town in southern California, had eye opening experiences entering the U.S. Army at the age of 20 in 1941. He served as a Battalion supply technician in the 3rd Infantry Division through the war until the ripe old age of 24 in 1945.

    This adventure took him from California across the United States, to North Africa and into Europe, including the Anzio landing. He wasn't on the front lines thus this is not a war story of battles and generals although there are battles to recount and Patton does make an appearance. This is the story of a regular guy in a most irregular situation, whose tales clearly illustrate the daily reality of wartime in World War Two.

    Bruce Monkman lives in Los Angeles, California, with his wife, Nancy. Since retiring from the Union Pacific Railroad, he spends his time gardening, visiting with friends, attending Army reunions, and writing his memoirs.

    To Purchase: Contact Bruce Monkman at 818-343-3370, , or send a check for $17.50 (book cost plus shipping) to him at P.O. Box 37-1311, Reseda, CA, 91337-1311. Calif. residence please add Sales Tax


    Authorhouse Bookstore Direct Link to "Traveling Through W.W.II"

    This is not a chronicle of a brave and heroic soldier who rose several ranks to Captain or Colonel or Major, although he received a simple PFC to T-5 promotion along the way with a bunch of ‘other ‘guys’. This was an ordinary American boy, raised in a devout Catholic family by parents with strict principles, who was caught up in the conditions of a U.S. World War into which he was hurled as a teenager.
        All at once, he was clad in khaki and sent here and there on the European battlefields.  He was taking orders alongside his Army comrades, and serving  his time as prescribed by U.S. Army guidelines. It is not a profound look at the lofty pursuits of a hero, but the necessary obligations of Private Arthur B. Pranger. There are narratives and exhibits included but primarily this volume reflects ‘Art’s’ personal ‘spin’  on this memorable period in history - 2 Years - 2 Months and 29 Days with A Company, 86th Chemical Mortar Battalion.
        The 86th CMB was an integral part of the war across Europe. The battalion's role with the 4.2. Mortar included being attached to a few dozen INFANTRY Regiments and Divisions across Europe - through Normandy,  Northern France - Belgium “Battle of the Bulge - Hurtgen Forest,” points in Germany - winding up in Czechoslovakia in 1945 leaving all this drama behind at Camp Campbell Kentucky to return to civilian life on November 6, 1945. This work includes humorous incidents - not usually associated with the serious business of warfare.

    First to the Rhine:
    The 6th Army Group in World War II (Hardcover)
    by Harry Yeide (Author), Mark Stout (Author)

    This is the story of the Allied forces--the U.S. 6th Army Group and French 1st Army--that landed in southern France on August 15th, 1944.
    The book follows the action from the French beaches to the Vosges Mountains, where the first Allied penetration along the entire Western front reached the Rhine River. First to the Rhine covers the vicious fighting during the German Nordwind counteroffensive in January 1945
    and the French-American offensive to clear the Colmar Pocket. It then pursues the forces of the Third Reich across the Rhine to their ultimate destruction.
    Unlike the forces landing in Normandy, these American divisions were hard-bitten veterans of the war in Italy, and, in the case of the 3d Infantry Division, North Africa. The French units included many veterans of the Italian campaign and comprised Frenchmen and Africans in almost equal numbers. As the campaign went on, the French ranks were swelled by tens of thousands of Free French Forces of the Interior, the famous maquis. The German forces arrayed against the Allies included the famed 11th Panzer Division, an Eastern front veteran known as the “Ghost Division,” which would hit the Allied advance time and again only to slip away before it could be pinned and destroyed.
    This is the harrowing story First to the Rhine tells, from the strategic plane-down through the corps, division, and regimental levels to the personal experience of the men in combat, including the likes of Audie Murphy, America’s most decorated infantryman of the war.  The book features little-known battles, including one at Montelimar, when an ad hoc American armored command and the 36th Infantry Division came within a hair’s breadth and several days of hard fighting of cutting off the entire German 19th Army. This is the first popular work in
    English to explore the French role in the fighting and the relationship between the U.S. Army and the French forces fighting under American command.
    "First to the Rhine draws heavily on official American and French after-action reports, other contemporary combat records such as highly detailed S-3 and G-3 journals, and interviews conducted by the Army with soldiers shortly after the actions occurred. It also features personal recollections written by key commanders in American, French, and German ranks, as well as illustrations from official U.S. Army photographers and filmmakers.

    Authors Harry Yeide and Mark Stout draw heavily on official American and French after-action reports, other contemporary combat records such as highly detailed S-3 and G-3 operations journals, and interviews conducted by the U.S. Army with soldiers shortly after the actions
    occurred. Also used are personal recollections written by key commanders in American, French, and German ranks. Illustrations come from official U.S. Army photographs and film. The result is the first popular English-language history that explores the French role in the fighting and the relationship between the U.S. Army and the French
    forces that fought under American command—and at times also controlled American divisions.

    Under the Wire : The World War II Adventures of a
    Legendary Escape Artist and "Cooler King"

    by William Ash, Brendan Foley

    I'm a London-based author and spent the last few years helping one of North America's greatest unsung heroes of WWII, William Ash, put together his wartime autobiography UNDER THE WIRE, which has just been published in USA and Canada.

    Bill, who just celebrated his 88th birthday, is probably the greatest living US prisoner of war escape-artist of WWII. Born in Texas, he joined the RCAF in 1940 and flew Spitfires until shot down in 1942. He then became a serial escape artist, attempting 13 PoW-camp escapes - cutting through the barbed wire, climbing over it, or tunneling under it before finally escaping for good.

    When the book came out in the UK a few months ago, it became an instant best-seller, but somehow it has been almost completely ignored so far by the media in North America. The only thing we can do to get Bill and his book the recognition they deserve in the US and Canada is to turn to the internet and people who care about WWII and the people who fought it for us. So I would be very grateful if you would forward this note to anyone who you think might like the book or help to spread the word that it is out there, available at most good bookshops or online at Amazon.

    Cold Ground's Been My Bed : A Korean War Memoir
    by Daniel Wolfe (Outpost 52)


    Available at List Price: $22.95

    Dan Wolfe was a Bronx, New York, teenager whose passions were baseball, fooling around in school, and hanging out at the candy store in the 1940s. Three years out of high school, he was drafted and sent to Korea. Cold Ground’s Been My Bed is his no-holds-barred memoir of the experience, from his physical to deployment into a frontline platoon.

    Dan tells the story with unflinching honesty and humor amid the tragedies that befell his company.

    Feeling inadequate about handling the Browning Automatic Rifle in basic training, he expressed his doubts to a cadre man, who assured him, “You don’t have to worry about it, kid. It’s given to the biggest men in the squad.” The day he arrived on the front line, Dan, five-foot-seven and 133 pounds, was assigned the twenty-pound BAR.
    When his platoon was ambushed, Dan crawled over fire-swept terrain to retrieve the body of his sergeant. Decades later he learned that he’d been cited for the Silver Star, but the Jeep carrying the papers was blown up by mortar rounds.
    When a GI was killed by negligent “friendly fire,” the victim’s buddy carried out a revenge murder.
    In recounting his story, Dan never pretends to be more than he was, a young man being shocked and shaped by the reality of war.

    THE NOT FORGOTTEN WAR chronicles the experiences of Private Nicholas Dick who served in a machine gun crew during the last few months of the Korean conflict. Those last months were among some of the bloodiest as both sides fought to claim as much territory as possible prior to reaching a cease-fire agreement. For years after his discharge, Nick was never able to talk about his horrific experiences and never mentioned the frequent nightmares he suffered. After a job injury forced him to take early retirement, he suddenly found himself becoming a victim of Post Traumatic Stress syndrome. Here is one GI's story of war and its aftermath.

    At last someone has written about the long overlooked story, of the critical part played (in December 1950) by the 7th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Division, in the vicious battle fought at Huksu-ri and Sachang-ni, southwest of the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea. The book contains 329 pages of real life adventure, humor, suspense, excitement, worry, disappointment, heartbreak, death, sadness, depression, recovery, happiness, and a multitude of historic facts.

    His life beginning in an upstairs flat in Detroit, Michigan, this is the story of Terry Lloyd Tennant, born into poverty during the great depression in the 1930’s, his experiences growing up in the inner city; then (at age 18) leaving home and enlisting in the United States Army.

    Known intimately only by those who were there and survived, it is the authors hope this book will be read by many of the 3rd Division men, so they will know and perhaps appreciate why we who were their are so proud of this special chapter in the long and glorious history of the 3rd Infantry Division U.S. Army - the “Rock of the Marne!”

    "Thunder Run:  The Armored Strike to Capture Baghdad"
    by David Zucchino

    Every war has images that are burned into the public's mind.  Operation Iraqi Freedom has several....the blinding sandstorms, or the photos of Iraqis and GIs tearing down statues and paintings of Saddam.  The other memorable event of the war for many was the sight of American armor racing into the heart of Baghdad, despite the daily assurances from Iraq's Information Minister that the Allies were nowhere near the city.  

    The armor was from the US Army's 3rd Infantry Division (Mechanized), and Los Angeles Times reporter David Zucchino was embedded with them for their drive up into Iraq, and then on their daring "Thunder Runs" into the city.  A year later, he has released a book about the division's remarkable armor thrusts into Baghdad and the savage fights on a major highway to the west of the city as the division sought to re-supply the armored force.  "Thunder Run:  The Armored Strike to Capture Baghdad"  promises to cement this amazing story into the annals of American military accomplishments with hundreds of first-hand accounts of what happened in the first week of April 2003, so far from Fort Stewart, Georgia.

    To Hell and Back (DVD/VHS)

    Audie Murphy, the most decorated soldier in WWII, plays himself in this 1955 film version of his military career, which culminates in his receiving the Medal of Honor. With David Janssen. (1955) (Historian: Kenneth Jackson, Professor of History, Columbia University.)
    [TV PG] 


    To Hell and Back DVD    To Hell and Back VHS

    Both from In Association with

    To Hell and Back (Paperback)

    His 1949 autobiography To Hell And Back was a best seller. Murphy starred as himself in a film biography released by Universal-International in 1955 with the same title. The movie, To Hell and Back, held the record as Universal's highest grossing picture until 1975 when it was finally surpassed by the movie Jaws.

    In the mid-60s the studios switched from contract players to hiring actors on a picture-by-picture basis. Consequently, when his contract expired in 1965 Universal did not renew. This gave him the opportunity to
    work with other studios and independent film producers. In the 25 years that Audie spent in Hollywood, he made a total of 44 feature films.

    The Fort Stewart Museum Foundation Presents
    the Official 3rd Infantry Division
    Limited Edition Print

    James Dietz
    750 Military Edition Prints (Limited Edition, Signed and Numbered) are available for $125.00.

    The Rock of the Marne…Tigris and Euphrates” captures the might and firepower of the 3rd Infantry Division in its historic drive to Baghdad and the eventual overthrow of the Hussein Regime. Known as the Marne Division, the 3rd Infantry Division added a new chapter to its rich history by moving farther and faster than any combat operation in history.

    Key to the success of the Division was the seizure of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, which allowed for the freedom of movement not only for the Division, but for the entire coalition forces. This limited edition print by artist James Dietz depicts not only the strength of the Division, but also reflects the bravery of the men and women who pushed over 750 kilometers into enemy territory and soundly defeated the Iraqi forces in every engagement of every battle.
