They deserve it -- those soldiers of the ground combat divisions -- the Army's fighting core -- this permanent record of the Army Divisions, their shoulder insignia, the things they stand for, the achievements that are theirs. ""Now it can be told"". This book is not a complete history, but it will give the highlights of that history. Civilians should know -- and combat troops will have this book as evidence of why each individual division was the best of the lot. A book that will be permanently valuable for ready reference -- on library shelves -- in veterans' centers -- in private libraries.
