White Plains, NY, Bernard C. Harris Publishing Company 1999 Soft Cover Very Good 
Xiv, 545 pages, illustrations, wrappers, very good. From the Messages from the Commanders of the American Ex-Prisoners of War Organization: "Ours is an organization unlike any other in the world. The very idea of a group of former POWs and civilian internees (the difference is slight between the two) and next of kin banding together in the interest of justice and good is almost without precedent. As I see it, our goal is to create and maintain a single fraternity, based on the bonds of fellowship that only we can know, and dedicated to the proposition that no American must ever again endure the hell we know so well" - (Kenneth Day, 1949).

15 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."
