World War II lasted three years and eight months and it changed the lives of millions of people. At the peak of the war, there were more than fifteen million men and women in uniform. We of the 12th Armored Division were accounted for in the records of the war in Europe. This final volume of personal memoir culminates the journey begun in Hellcat Historian--stories from those who were there supplemented with research to put these young men's heroic actions into historical context. For many, as green 18-year-old GIs, this was the first time they ventured beyond their home towns.
