Tanks for the Memories
An oral history of the 712th Tank Battalion in WW2.
Paperback - 357 pages. "Tanks for the Memories" tells the stories, in their own words, of the veterans of one of America's most decorated "small" units in World War II, the independent 712th Tank Battalion, which was attached mostly to the 90th Infantry Division from Normandy through the hedgerows, Northern France, the Battle of the Bulge, the Siegfried Line and finally into Czechoslovakia. It follows the members of the battalion from their beginnings in the Great Depression to their days in the horse cavalry to their training as tankers to 11 months in almost daily combat. Their stories not only make for powerful reading, but show how ordinary men performed extraordinary feats of courage and heroism under the deadliest of conditions.
Many books have been written about tanks. This is about the men who were in them, the drivers, loaders, gunners, mechanics, tank commanders, assistant drivers.
