  10. 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment scrapbook, Currahee

    € 550.00
    Without a doubt one of the hardest to find unit books of WWII that rarely comes up for sale. It is also one of the best designed unit books. It contains a wealth of photos, information and maps.

Unfortunately someone cut the 101st patch and jumpwings from page (overpaid killer) but that is only a minor setback for this iconic publishing. The hardcover book measures about 38 x 26 centimeters. View the many photos, which are only a small presentation of the book.
