Logmeter's Long Toms: The Travels of the 733 F.A. Bn. from Camp Shelby, Miss. to Kolbermoor, Bavaria, Germany --31 March 1944 to 9 June 1945
first editionOriginal wraps
by Captain Peter A. Simeone (Marine Corps)
1945. Original wraps. Very Good -. A wonderful, significant piece of World War II history. A fragile booklet, a log, mapping out in detail the schedule and itinerary of this American battalion. SIGNED BY OVER 100 RETURNING SOLDIERS FROM THE BATTALION ( THE 733 F.A. BN, WHICH SET OUT FROM MISSISSIPPI IN LATE MARCH '44 AND SOME 7 1/2 MONTHS LATER --IN MID-NOVEMBER-- PENETRATED INTO GERMANY). This booklet has obviously travelled long and far but has held up nicely and is still very solid in its stapled, salmon-colored wrappers. Light creasing and a bit of inevitable wear are far outweighed by the miracle of these returning heroes (all 106 of them) signing their names and addresses on the "Memoranda" pages and the pastedowns of this very scarce logbook.
