Although the division spent only six months in the desert, it fought both the British and the Americans.It gave the “green” American Army a bloody nose in some of its first encounters with the Germans, includng the legendary fighting at Kasserine Pass, before it had to bow to defeat and capitulation at Tunis in May 1943.Although the division had a proud and successful history, it was never reconstituted.Authors J. Restayn and N. Moller have brought this division to life with photoraphs that chronicle the division from its formation to its demise.Hundreds of unpublished photographs from veterans of the division are coupled with breathtaking combat photography from French and German archives.In addition to the pictorial coverage, the reader is treated to a concise account of the division’s histories, maps of all of its major campaigns, numerous tables of tank inventories and order of battle along with 34 pages of full colour illustrations, including two pages of colour photogrphs.J. Restayn has superbly illustrated virtually all of the combat vehicles and artillery pieces of the division as well as most of the armoured personnel carriers, armoured cars and soft-skinned vehicles it used throughout its 44-mnth history.In addition, there are numerous renderings of some of the armoured vehicles the division encountered during its campaigns.
