Two further volumes in the history of the United States Army in World War II. The book by MacDonald and Mathews is devoted to the exploits of small units in battle--the battalions, the platoons and the individual soldiers. The actions described are the crossing of the Moselle River at Dornot and Arnaville, the penetration of the Gothic Line at Monte Altuzzo, and the battle for Schmidt, Germany, in November 1944. The pictorial record continues the series, in which similar volumes on the Mediterranean and European theaters have already appeared.
