Thank you for the pictures. My hobby is the study of military history, especially WWII, and every night I'll read for a half hour or more. Most times I'll have three or four books going at a time.
The Hurtgen (aka Huertgen) Forest figures in a lot of soldier's accounts. One of the best in my library is "Follow Me And Die. The Death Of A Division", by Cecil B. Curry, which details in vivid detail the struggle of the 28th Infantry Division in the Hurtgen.
Again, thanks for the photos and description. I eat this kind of thing up.
And Thank You for serving our country. I was Army, 1967-1970, 5th Infantry Division (Mechanized), at Fort Carson and also Vietnam.
