Quick Overview

This is the official 99th Battalion history book that was printed in Norway right after the war. The 99th was a separate units (not attached to a regiment) and one of the few small US units with its own number. It consisted for the greater part of men from Norwegian decent. The unit saw a lot of action in the ETO. Because it was such a small unit any item related to it, including this book, is rare. This medium size book has 94 pages with many photos, drawings and maps plus an additional photo section in the back. This is the super rare original version, not a reprint. It comes with its original shipping box (shipped from Oslo, Norway in 1946). The box sustained some damage but it kept the book in great shape. The label on the box indicates the book was sent to Lawern Moltzau. It seems likely he was a veteran of the unit but this may do with further resarch. In January 1945 the battalion became part of the 474th Regiment. This book is a 'must have' for the WWII history buff or anyone with a specific interest in this unit. View the many photos. Insured package shipping is mandatory for this item.

Very good condition.
