C-66 A World War II Chronicle of an Armored Infantry Company, Emery, Weston Lewis
6 Emery, Weston Lewis C-66 A World War II Chronicle of an Armored Infantry Company
Weston Lewis Emery 1992 0929539303 / 9780929539300 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Near Fine with No dust jacket as issued Signed by Author
Blue (Infantry color) cover with gold illustration and print. Inscribed to former owner and signed "Muscles" the nickname of author and also signed by author on title page. This is the story of 512 men who worked for a common goal during a period of 155 days. Few of them were together during all those days, but all of them belonged to the same group. Many were no longer there when the job was done. Some gave their lives early - Some were taken prisoner - Some were hospitalized - Some gave their lives later - Some were with the group for 155 days.This brief record of their service in World War II is dedicated to all of them. ADD This is a remarkable record of one unit of an armored division during the last five months of the the war in Europe. It is carefully researched from official documents of the National Archives, and is laced with letters written home. This saga has been compiled by one of the enlisted men who never missed a day of duty and whose first hand view point as a company commander's combat radioman gives us a broad inside view of the company. Several helpful reviews: "We are placing C-66 in the Military Academy Library as an excellent resource for our cadets." Lieutenant General, U.S. Army, Superintendant United States Military Academy West Point May 4, 1994, "Works of your calliber are especially important.... I'm placing your book in the Armor School Library." -- Major General, U.S.Army, Commanding General. Headquarters U. S. Army Armor Center and Fort Knox. May 23, 1994 Rare signed copy. "W.L. Emory takes a different approach in bringing us the history of Company C (Hqs. Co.) of the 66th Armored Infantry Battalion of the 12th Armored Division from November, 1944 to war's end. Most of the other ex-infantrymen authors who have published accounts of World War II relate personal experiences of the excitement, terror, humor, and even boredom of combat. Sgt. Emory takes a more structured and factual approach in this self-published work. He relies on military records found in various Government archives to form the foundation of his book."
