"The top living D-Day historian."—USA Today "No one has written a better or more comprehensive history of a U.S. Army combat division in World War II than Joseph Balkoski in his five volumes on the 29th Infantry Division. The Last Roll Call is a powerful, splendid capstone to this exceptional achievement."—Rick Atkinson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the Liberation Trilogy Joseph Balkoski concludes his landmark series on the U.S. 29th Infantry Division in World War II with the story of the 29ers during the war's final five months. Opening with the division's participation in Operation Grenade, Balkoski follows the 29ers through the crossing of the Roer River, the blitzkrieg-style drive across the Rhineland to the Rhine River, their military-government duties while helping to reduce the Ruhr pocket, and the survivors' return home. • Powerful finale to the saga of an American division in Europe in World War II • Blends meticulous research with masterful storytelling • Strong emphasis on the men of the 29th and their stories

Originally published in 1958 and now available for the first time in paperback, this classic of modern military history tells the exciting true story of the fall of St. Lo, the first major objective of the invading American armies in Normandy in June of 1944. Although St. Lo was intended to be taken within days of the landing, stubborn German resistance postponed the town's fall until July 18. The author describes the bloody action that took place in the thirty days in between as he led his battalion -- dubbed "The Indestructible Clay Pigeons" -- through the daunting combat.
