Unit history of the U.S. Army's 86th "Black Hawk" Infantry Division in World War II, written by a member of the unit. Composed almost entirely of Selective Service inductees, the unit became known as the "Kid Division," because of its youth. The average age of the entire division, officers and all, was only 22.

They served originally in Europe, and after the war ended there, they were shipped to the Pacific, to be part of the forces invading Japan, but arrived in the Philippines in mid-September 1945, where they "mopped-up" Japanese stragglers.
