Download From Poplar To Papua: Montana's 163rd Infantry Regiment in World War II epub
by Martin J. Kidston
Kidston shares the soldiers sometimes humorous, often chilling, and always fascinating accounts of the years they spent fighting the Japanese after the historic bombing of Pearl Harbor. The stories are collected from personal journals, news stories, and survivor interviews. Kidston also recounts how the 1,500 young men left their hometowns in Montana and adapted to combat in the jungles of the South Pacific, the coast of Australia, and the islands of the Philippines.
More than a tale of war, From Poplar to Papua is a tribute to an entire generation of men and women who saw the nation through one of its most important eras.
