Opis produktu:

Told here is the riveting story of the 332nd U.S. Infantry Regiment in the Army in World War I. As Pershings Propaganda Regiment they were the only American regiment assigned to Italy, where they formed a phantom army that helped defeat the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The 332nd fought in the Vittorio-Veneto Campaign and following the armistice, served in the occupation of Austria, Dalmatia, and Montenegro. Includes the uniforms, insignia, and ephemera, of the 332nd; lavishly illustrated with over 300 rare and previously unpublished color and sepia photographs, which are drawn from public and private collections. This detailed work illuminates the compelling story of the courageous Lions of St. Mark.

Robert and Rebecca Dalessandro have written a remarkable and easy-to-read account of this group of National Army recruits from Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Indiana slated to serve in the 83rd Division. They started out as young civilians under the tutelage of battle hardened officers and NCOs bound for France and ended up an elite unit the equivalent of Rangers. Their short combat experience was exemplary, but after the war they embarked on a unique peacekeeping mission that is still used as the model for such endeavors these days.
