  • 4th Armored Division in the Encirclement of Nancy, The - FREE
    • by Dr. Christopher R. Gabel, Combat Studies Institute, U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, Leavenworth, Kansas, April 1986, 32 pages, 3 figures, 8 maps. In 1944, the 4th Armored Division played a central role in one of the more remarkable campaigns in American military history—Third Army's pursuit across France, which was capped off by the encirclement and capture of Nancy. In the course of this campaign, the 4th Armored Division practiced a mode of warfare that has since become known to the Army as AirLand Battle. Inasmuch as the encirclement of Nancy is one of the few historical examples that shows American mechanized forces waging war in accordance with the tenets of AirLand Battle, anyone seeking a deeper appreciation of today's doctrine would do well to study this campaign carefully.
  • 4th Marines and Soochow Creek, The: The Legend and the Medal - FREE
    • by F. C. Brown, John Lelle and Roger Sullivan, International Grahics Corporation, Bennington, Vermont, 1980 (forerunner of Merriam Press), 28 pages, 60 photos, 10 illustrations, 2 maps, notes. This work provides a detailed history of the U.S. 4th Marine Regiment from 1914 to 1942, with emphasis on its period of service in China. In addition, the authors have included an amusing sidelight—the story of the (unofficial) Soochow Creek Medal. Many of the photos have not been published before (gleaned from personal albums of Marines who were there) and depict Shanghai in peace and war. A must for every Marine Corps buff and veteran, it records for posterity an otherwise little-known chapter of the Marines in China.

  • 66th Infantry Division in World War II, The a.k.a.: 66: A Story of World War II - FREE
    • by Siinto S. Wessman, 66th Infantry Division, 1946, 174 pages, 277 photos, maps. From the Preface: Originally this volume started out as a picture pamphlet in answer to numerous requests for photographs I had made of the 66th. But as I ran through my files the more photos I looked at the more I thought should be included. Eventually by sheer size alone, it turned into a book. No claim is made that this book represents the complete story of the 66th. Hundreds of heroic deeds by Panthermen will never be recorded. Space here permits only a few which are typical.

  • 9th Australian Division Versus the Africa Corps, The: An Infantry Division Against Tanks, Tobruk, Libya 1941 - FREE
    • by Col. Ward A. Miller, Combat Studies Institute, U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, August 1986, 80 pages, 9 photos, 1 figure, 8 maps. In April and May 1941, the previously successful blitzkrieg tactics of the German Army met defeat by the outnumbered Australian forces of the 9th Division at Tobruk. The Australian infantry achieved victory through a successful all-around defense against tank attacks in force. By employing all available assets in a combined arms effort, well-supported light infantry forces defeated a heavier armored force. This work provides the reader with a valuable historical context for evaluating how light infantry forces can confront armored attacks. This study also reveals how light infantry forces operated and were supported and sustained in a desert environment.
