This book contains information about the U.S. Army units that participated in all theaters of the Second World War: when they were activated, where they were
activated, and all of their locations up to and including any deactivation. The
author even includes a table showing what units contributed personnel to form
newer units. This work lists the divisional commanders and what smaller units were
attached to them while in combat. An easy to read description shows unit changes
over their existance. Most books about the Second World War seem to concentrate on personalities and battles. This book covers the fighting units in detail! I would certainly recommend it to those interested in what U.S. Army units existed and when.
The Order of battle was more than expected . Very helpful in researching the units from WW2. Well worth having I would recommend it to anyone checking the history of a unit.
WWII Order of Battle is an invaluable source of information for anyone conducting research on individual Army units.
This book is just what many have been needing to research units, and their subordinate components, and units attached for varying amounts of time, whether in the Pacific Theater or the European Theater. Now it is much easier to catalog patches and DI's according to the Command and Theater, and to do the research on the smaller units, often overlooked in other material.
Stanton's book is mandatory equipment for any student of US Army Forces in WWII. It is the definitive resource to learn the facts about any unit in the US Army. But like a dictionary, it's not a book that you would, or would even want to - read from cover to cover.
Wonderful book to trace WWII units. It is rathr difficult to navigate, however, once you learn that the book gives more data than many other sources. Slso the price was vry reasonable.
Must have book for the military history enthusiast, especially of the WWII era.
Excellent information on combat arms units during WWII.
