Old Hickory : The 30th Division: The Top-Rated American Infantry Division in Europe in World War II
About this item
The U.S. 30th Infantry Division, a National Guard unit recruited from the hill country of Tennessee and the Carolinas and nicknamed "Old Hickory" after Andrew Jackson, was ranked by army historians as the best American infantry division of World War II, a judgment confirmed by the Germans, who called the division "Roosevelt's SS". In vivid detail Robert Baumer describes how the 30th cemented that reputation with hard fighting in every major American campaign in the European theater, from Normandy to Germany's surrender.
