The 11th Airborne Division arrived in New Guinea, 25 May 1944, and continued training, leaving for the Philippines 11 November 1944. It landed amphibiously, not by jump, on Leyte, 18 November 1944, between Abuyog and Tarragona, 40 miles south of Tacloban, and pushing inland, cleared the Ormoc-Burauen supply trail, an important Japanese combat lifeline. The 11th's general mission was to seize and secure within its zone all exits from the mountains into. Leyte Valley and to secure the western exits from the mountains into the west coastal corridor to assist the attack of the 7th Division toward Ormoc. On 6 December 1944 the paratroopers of the 11th found themselves fighting Japanese parachutists who had landed near the San Pablo airstrip. The Japanese were wiped out in a 5-day engagement. In a continuous series of combat actions, Japanese resistance was reduced on Leyte by the end of December 1944. Heavy resistance was met at Rock Hill, which finally fell, 18 December; a sleeping enemy was caught off guard at Hacksaw Hill, 23 December, and suffered heavy losses. During January 1945 the Division rested and staged for a landing on Luzon. While other American troops were driving on Manila from the north, the 11th Airborne made an amphibious landing 60 miles south of Manila, 31 January 1945, at Nasugbu, and began to drive north. The first combat jump by an element of the division in the war, that of the 511th Parachute Infantry Regiment on Tagaytay Ridge, 3 February 1945, met no resistance. The 511th crossed the Paranaque River 5 February, and reached Manila, meeting fierce Japanese resistance. Nichols Field was taken, 12 February, and Fort McKinley was flanked, 12-16 February, and finally taken, 17 February. A combined air and sea assault liberated more than 2,000 American and European interned nationals at Los Banos, 23 February 1945. With Manila declared secure, the Division reduced a strong ring of enemy outposts between Lake Taal and Laguna de Bay, and occupied towns along Highway No. 1, cutting off the Bicol Peninsula. In April the 11th took part in clearing out remaining enemy resistance in Batangas Province, and by 1 May, all resistance in southern Luzon had ended. The final operation of the Division was conducted on 23 June 1945, in conjunction with the advance of the 37th Division in northern Luzon. A Task Force was formed and jumped on Camalaniugan Airfield, south of Aparri. The force attacked and made contact with the 37th Infantry Division, 26 June 1945, between Alcala and the Paret River. In July 1945 the Division trained; in August it was transported by air to Honshu, Japan, via Okinawa, for occupation. duty. Nickname: The Angels.

Connole, Dennis A. - THE 26TH "YANKEE" DIVISION ON COAST PATROL DUTY 1942-1943- McFarland Publishing - ISBN# 9780786431427 - BRAND NEW Laminated Oversized Softcover - 85 photos, appendices, notes, bibliography, index - 214pp - Within hours of the strike against Pearl Harbor, the U.S. military sprang to implement a "contingency plan" previously drawn up to protect the coast against a full-scale German invasion or incursions by Nazi espionage agents and saboteurs. The War Department placed the 26th "Yankee" Division (YD) under the jurisdiction of the 1st Coast Artillery District, a subdivision of the U.S. Army Coast Artillery Corps. Military leaders charged the division with securing the coast of New England and Long Island, later expanding its area to include the entire eastern seaboard. Focusing primarily on the unit's work in "home defense" from January 1942 through November 1943, this history begins with prewar activation and training and recounts in detail the two highly publicized incidents of saboteurs coming ashore in June 1942. Also included are reports of U-boat sightings and encounters with subversive agents by veterans of the YD while on patrol. Firsthand accounts of members of the division provide a look at day-to-day operations. - List Price = $39.95 - Our Price - $37

Once into the thick of the action, the soldiers of the 82nd were never out of it; and All American, All the Way follows them from Sicily to Salerno to the treacherous mountains around Naples. Here the narrative forks, as the bulk of the division left Italy for England to prepare for the invasion of Normandy, leaving behind one regiment, the 504th Parachute Infantry, to take part in the disastrous assault on Anzio. Author Phil Nordyke brings to harrowing life the division's exploits on June 6, 1944, where, after spearheading the airborne invasion, the paratroopers proved invaluable as shock troops and were pulled out of combat only to mount the airborne invasion of Holland the campaign immortalized in A Bridge Too Far. We witness the airborne forces' daring daylight jump deep behind Nazi lines, only to see their initial success erased by the failures of the armored division that followed. And we see the 82nd, barely a month later, thrust back into action when the Battle of the Bulge came roaring out of the Ardennes. - List Price = $35 - Our Price - $31.45

Assigned at various times to the Third, Seventh and Ninth armies, the "Black Panthers" fought major engagements in six European countries and participated in four major Allied campaigns, inflicting heavy casualties on the German army and capturing or destroying thousands of weapons, despite severe weather, difficult terrain, heavily fortified enemy positions, extreme shortages of replacement personnel and equipment, and an overall casualty rate approaching 50 percent. Richly illustrated and containing many interviews with surviving members of the 761st, this work gives long overdue recognition to the unit whose motto was "Come Out Fighting." It recounts the events that in 1978 33 years after the end of World War II led to the 761st Tank Battalion's receiving a Presidential Unit Citation, the highest honor a unit can receive. Also described are the efforts that resulted, in 1997 53 years after giving his life on the battlefield in the Medal of Honor being posthumously awarded to Sergeant Ruben Rivers - Publisher's List Price = $39.95 -Our Price - $36

The author has gone to extraordinary lengths to locate and interview surviving members of the Leibstandarte, including the central figure of this narrative, SS-Brigadefhrer und Generalmajor der Waffen-SS Wilhelm Mohnke, who was with the Leibstandarte from the very beginning serving on the first guard mount at the Reich Chancellery in Berlin to the very end when he was in charge of the final defense of the governmental seat of power. He provides fascinating insights into the inner circle around the Fhrer and, indeed, Hitler's final moments and what transpired after his suicide. In addition, 62 other soldiers are profiled generally in their own words and represent all of the combat formations of the division: Artillery, Infantry, Armor, Reconnaissance, Air Defense and Engineers. Also unique among publications concerning the Leibstandarte is the appearance of nearly 700 photographs, 165 images of award documents and more than 70 other illustrations, with almost all of the pre-war and wartime photographs having been previously unpublished! In addition to never-before-seen candid images of Hitler, Dietrich and a number of other leading military personalities, there are exceptional photographs of the forces in the field and with their weapons and equipment - Publisher's List = $95 - Our Price - $88

Formed at the direction of Hitler in response to the dramatic situation that was developing on the Eastern Front in the summer of 1944, the brigades 10 in all were to be a form of field-army-level ready reserve and strike force. These brigades, which featured a tank battalion, a mechanized infantry battalion, a company of mechanized combat engineers as well as a substantial amount of organic antiaircraft firepower, could have been the "iron fist" envisioned by Hitler had they not been so hastily formed and then committed in ways never doctrinally called for - Publisher's List = $64 - Our Price - $59

The division fought in Russia through 1943 near Leningrad, participating in the Second and Third Ladoga Battles. It also was at the Oranienbaum Pocket, at the Wolchow, near Nowgorod and then retreated to the Narwa. In April 1943 it began converting into a Panzergrenadier-Division and some of its elements were sent west to training grounds in Poland and Czechoslovakia. As 1943 wore on, the division was shifted around Leningrad to meet Soviet incursions. In the fall, more units were withdrawn for conversion, and then some of them were sent to Greece for garrison duties. At one point in time, the division was in three places; most of it in northern Russia near Leningrad, a part in southern Russia near Tscherkassy, and the converting elements in Greece. Eventually, the division was united in Greece in April 1944. There, it welcomed its Sturmgeschutz battalion. The division trained and carried out anti-partisan operations until the end of August 1944. When Romania defected to the Soviets in late August, the division retreated from Greece through Serbia and Rumania into Hungary. There it fought in the defense of eastern Hungary and later participated in the attempted relief of Budapest. After Budapest fell, the Polizei Division was transferred in January 1945 through Slovakia to eastern Pommerania (Stettin). When Pommerania was cut off by the Russians, the division fought defensively and retreated east toward the Gotenhafen-Danzig area. It was evacuated to Hela by ferry and then from Hela to Swinemunde on ships. It defended western Pommerania, and then northwest of Berlin. It retreated west toward Hamburg (Ludwiglust) at the end of April and surrendered on May 2, 1945 to the British - Publisher's List = $70 - Our Price - $67.99

Mountain troops even formed part of Rommel?s famed Afrikakorps. During the war, the army alone formed a total of eleven mountain divisions, plus independent battalions and units. The accomplishments of the ?Men of the Edelweis? are still held in high regard by historians and military experts. Armed forces and special units worldwide use their alpine and combat abilities as an example, for in mountain fighting the weather and the terrain often caused more casualties than the enemy. Through impressive photographs and brief, insightful text, this chronicle offers the reader and extraordinary view into the world of these elite troops, who were always committed where the outcome hung in the balance -Direct shipped in U.S. via UPS by Publisher in 1-2 Days unless otherwise noted (NOT Shipped via Book Rate!) - Added UPS shipping charge will apply - Overseas Shipping on this via Airmail Only! - Publisher's List Price = $59.95 - Our Price - $44.70
