In the Bucket
About the Book
This unique book is the first to document the specific history of the 197th Anti-aircraft Automatic Weapons (SP) Battalion unit during World War II. It follows the battalion from their training until their discharge in post-war Germany. The unit was one of the first two AA units to employ half-tracks for the new mobile-warfare doctrine of the U.S. Army in Europe and saw action from Normandy through the Battle of the Bulge. The author collected his information from letters, government documents and over fifty first-person interviews.
