176 pages, well illustrated in color, cloth, DJ, very good. From the dust jacket: "In 21 Days To Baghdad, Time's photographers and correspondents provide exclusive, eyewitness accounts of Operation Iraqi Freedom. It was a history-making campaign. In just three weeks, U. S. And British forces sprinted 350 miles from the Kuwait-Iraq border to downtown Baghdad. Time's journalists were there - reporting the action as the 3rd Infantry Division fought off suicidal attackers in Najaf, riding in the lead humvee when the Marines took Kut, traversing mountains with special forces as they hunted down terrorists. 21 Days to Baghdad gives an insider look at the people of Iraq as well, taking you to the urban battlefields of Baghdad, Basra and Kirkuk to see the impact of war on ordinary citizens. All told, 21 Days to Baghdad is a griping perspective on a new kind of war from some of the world's best photojournalists and reporters. " ; 176 pages

5 Anzio Beachhead 22 January-25 May 1944
Washington Center of Military History, United States Army 1990 Softcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
X, 122 pages, well illustrated, maps (many folding) , pictorial wrappers, 8 by 11 inches. Embossed label of the previous owner, a noted aviation collector. CMH Pub 100-10. First printed by the Historical Division, War Department, for the American Forces in Action series, 1948. "Anzio Beachhead, fourteenth in the series of studies of particular combat operations, is the story of how VI Corps of the American Fifth Army seized and held a strategic position far to the rear of the main fighting front, in the Italian campaign of 1944. Since VI Corps included British as well as American units, and the high command in Italy was in British rather than in American hands, the battle to maintain the Anzio beachhead was an Allied rather than an exclusively American operation. Essentially, this narrative of Anzio is confined to the first six weeks of bitter struggle to hold the beachhead against German attacks designed to drive the Allied forces from their foothold, a period which ended on 3 Match. Thereafter, until the Allied offensive of May, the Anzio beachhead was a static and relatively quiet front. Then the beachhead forces spearheaded the drive that led to the capture of Rome. Only a sketch of this final and decisive phase of the Anzio operation is included in this narrative. This study is based upon a first narrative by Capt. John Bowditch, III, prepared in the field from military records and from notes and interviews recorded during and after the operation by Captain Bowditch and by 1st Lt. Robert W. Kerner. Although as published this book contains no documentation, the original narrative, fully documented, is on file in the War Department. Captain Bowditch's manuscript has been revised and extended with the help of additional information, including that obtained from enemy records, in the Historical Division, War Department Special Staff, by Maj. Roy Lamson, Jr. , and by Dr. Stetson Conn."

The base would only be operational from the autumn of 1917, when the first unit arrived - the 152nd Ambulance Corps, pulled by teams of horses, followed by its first fighting division, the 38th Infantry - until six months after Armistice Day, when the army closed the camp in April 1919. ... Phototographs of the time show the famous tent cities of the nascent camp, with six-man huts stretching as far as the eye can see."

Approximately 150 pages, well illustrated, cloth, very good. 8 by 11 inches. Introduction by John F. Bohlender, Major General, MC, Commanding. Scarce. From Wikipedia: "In 1941, the Station Hospital prepared for an overwhelming flow of casualties from World War II battlefields by converting a 220-person enlisted barracks into additional patient wards. In 1942, the Station Hospital was renamed Brooke General Hospital in Brooke's honor. In 1944, BAMC converted a Cavalry Battalion barracks into a convalescent unit to accommodate the flow of casualties from the war. This building later became Beach Pavilion. Beach housed a substantial portion of BAMC assets to include patient wards and specialty clinics. In 1946, Fort Sam Houston was chosen as the new site for the U. S. Army Medical Field Service School. The decision to centralize the Army's medical research and training at one location resulted in the renaming of Brooke General Hospital to Brooke Army Medical Center. "
